What's Happening In Eighth Grade Science
For the past few weeks 8th grade Science students have been studying fossils. This unit included tracing fossil evidence. The activity took Mrs. Blome and Mrs. Lowther's students outside to examine different dinosaur tracks. Students then had to use observations to conclude what activities the dinosaurs had been doing when the tracks were created.
Computational Thinking in Digital Media & Literacy

In Mrs. Shabram’s Digital Media & Literacy class, students are starting their Intro to Computer Science Unit.  One of their beginning activities was to learn about the steps of computational thinking.  Students practiced their computational thinking skills by creating a picture using Tangrams and then writing an algorithm (a list of steps) so that other students in class could recreate their picture.

WMS SkillsUSA Donates To Habitat For Humanity

eld a fundraiser benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Omaha.  From September 22 - October 3, SkillsUSA Club members collected money before school, raising a total of $602.35.  This money will go directly towards the cost of building decent, affordable housing right here in the Omaha metro area.  Pictured is Christiana Roenne from Habitat for Humanity of Omaha receiving a donation check from SkillsUSA Club members.
