Thanks to the many community members who were in attendance, the YME Science Fair was a huge success! Well over 150 people were able to check out the many interactive experiments being conducted by the Life Science classes. With this year's theme being "The Human Body," volunteers were able to participate in a variety of data-collecting experiments. In conjunction with the Fair, a pulled-pork sandwich meal fundraiser was held in the cafeteria to benefit the boys' basketball team. And to top off the night, community members who attended the boys' football game against Morris were treated to an exciting, well-played game - and a victory for the Sting!
If you ask anyone who was involved with school activities last week, they'll probably tell you about the enthusiasm and perseverance of the students at YME. It started on Tuesday night with a "come from behind" win for the Sting volleyball team at ACGC. On Wednesday, YME hosted the conference cross country meet at the golf course where our runners turned in some of their best times.
For many of our younger students, the Science Fair was their first "outing" with the community where THEY were the ones in the limelight, inviting people to come and try their experiment. And even if you didn't attend the football game, you probably heard all the cheering from the stands clear across town!
We'd like to extend a continuing invitation to the community to come and see what we're up to at YME. We have a lot to offer and we're always looking for opportunities that allow our students to be involved and active outside the school walls.
Thanks for your support.
