and Science was celebrated at the April School Board meeting. Two
students and Mrs. Wendy Whitmer and Mrs. Jeana Simpson shared the
accomplishments of Lakeside Middle School's Science and Math Club. Over
30 students participated in the Club that explored a variety of math and
science related activities this year.
Of particular interest was the students' success in both Science Olympiad and Math Is Cool competitions. LMS sent 23
competitors to its first Science Olympiad: three eighth grade students,
one seventh grade student, and 19 sixth graders. The teams performed
incredibly well and were the highest ranked new team in the competition.
They placed in Simple Machines, Meteorology, Fossils, and Picture This. In Math Is Cool the students also performed extremely well. The "mathletes" competed in Timed Individual Test, Mental Math, Relay Race, Team Test, and Knowledge Bowl contests. A team of students will be competing in the State tournament in May.
The School Board congratulated the students and
thanked the two teachers who volunteer their time to advise/coach this club.
