MHS students and staff dressed up in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math vocabulary words to show that they are too smart to start! Students chose a STEM word, a word that is related to or used in STEM , and then created a costume to represent that word. Students also made signs to represent and explain their vocabulary word. This activity was part of Red Ribbon Week.

Ms. Kathy Russ believes it is essential to not only teach academic but also practical skills to her students, and that when combined, the two can lead to loads of fun. This week, students learned about the human body and made noodle skeletons. They also learned how to bake bread and concoct mummy pizza. And to add to the excitement, Ms. Russ led the class in making magnetic slime, proving that both learning and fun ooze from her room.
