Partners in Ed Recognition Assembly

We truely appreciate our Partners In Education and all that they do for us here at Midway Heights!

                            THANK YOU!

5th Graders launch a Weather Balloon!

Mr. Jonathan Morrand assisted the 5th graders in getting the grant and launching the balloon!

Several special guests joined the 5th graders including KOMU-TV8's Eric Aldrich!

The latest great news from our Midway 5th grade climate team on the weather balloon launch...A farmer in IL found the weather balloon with the camera and the cell phone.  Ms. Stewart drove 150 miles to retrieve it (probably a trip that took several times longer for her than the balloon!), and the camera which had been set to video took a video of most of the journey, including footage from above the clouds showing the curvature of the earth!

4th Grade Museum

Fourth grade students hosted a skull museum for other students.  They shared what they had learned about skulls and types of teeth.  Students also classified the animals as possible herbivore, carnivores, or omnivores, and then did research to confirm their thinking.  Thanks to all the classes who visited!
