MindFrame Competition Winners

MINDFRAME is a design-based problem-solving competition that gives scholars in grades 4-8 the opportunity to apply the content they are learning in the contexts of either engineering or art. By doing so, they can construct deep understandings of how this knowledge can be authentically used in their daily lives.

Let's Taco Bout Words...

They presented their poster to their classmates and parents and used their word in a sentence. The posters were colorful and creative. Rock on Ms. Watson's class!

Figurative & Literal Great Hearts

His visit correlated with their Wit & Wisdom module entitled, "A Great Heart." This module focused on the stories related to the circulatory system and how to have a healthy heart.
