4th graders learned about potential and kinetic energy as they dropped water from different heights and measured the diameter of the splashes. The results of their experiment proved that more potential energy is built up the higher the water drops from, converting to more kinetic energy as it falls, creating a bigger splash.

N.O.V.A. is the education program taught by Detective McCoy of the Mapleton Police Department. He taught our 6th-grade students about accountability, risky behaviors (drugs, violence, dangers of media), good decision-making, and resources available to them (parents, teachers, community leaders, etc.).
Our Math Olympiad students kicked the new year off right with the 3rd contest of the year. All twenty-three mathletes answered at least one of the questions correctly!
