WMS Celebrates National Engineers Week
February 22-28 was National Engineers Week, and to help celebrate this event at Westside Middle School, there were several events happening throughout the week.  Each morning during the announcements, students read short excerpts celebrating what engineers do.  Displays were also placed around the school helping to promote the event, and bookmarks highlighting E Week were handed out in the Library.  There was also an internet engineering scavenger hunt for students to take part in.  Over 90 students participated in this, with prizes awarded on Friday to students who correctly answered all questions.
 
On Wednesday, several engineers from HDR visited Engineering & Technology classes to share their expertise and work experiences.   The engineers shared a lot of information with the students in regards to Chemical, Civil, and Environmental Engineering.  Some different activities the students were able to take part in with the guest speakers were Water Filtration, Tower Building, Toothpaste Taste Testing, and Bridge Construction.  See the pictures showing some of the highlights from the day.
 
SkillsUSA and WMS Help Support Project Harmony
The SkillsUSA Club recently organized a Pajama Day at WMS to help support the efforts of Project Harmony.  For $1.00, students could wear pajamas throughout the school day, and they were also entered into a drawing for a variety of gift card prizes.  In total, $434.00 was raised!  Following the event, Amy Chisholm, Development Director for Project Harmony, was invited to speak to the SkillsUSA Club and accept the donation check.
Entrepreneurship Week, Feb. 23-27
Westside Middle School students celebrated Entrepreneurship WeekFeb. 23-27.  Daily announcements were made by students about the definition and characteristics of an entrepreneur, in addition to providing examples of well-known entrepreneurs.  A school-wide competition of naming various entrepreneurs was celebrated on Friday.   All About Business students also wrote to local entrepreneurs and have received some replies.  Throughout the week, they researched and reported on their chosen entrepreneur.  Special guest, Vic Larsen, Vic’s Popcorn, presented valuable information to All About Business students about becoming an entrepreneur.  The class is also learning about social entrepreneurs.  They are collecting pop tabs during the week of Mar. 2-6 to be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House.
WMS Free Art Movement

Students at WMS are starting a movement - a FreeArt Movement. Royer's Mixed Media students are creating canvases that will be hidden all over Omaha to promote a FreeArt Movement. The canvases will be packaged with instructions on what to do with them once you find them. Some are yours to keep, some we ask that you pass on to someone else who needs FreeArt. Clues will be disseminated on the wmsfreeart facebook page and by following EY@WMS on Twitter. Get some FREE ART!
