Students were excited to use Cheez-It crackers as manipulatives during their activity. One student's response was, "Oh yeah! Food helps us to remember experiences! So, this will help my learning!"

Sixth graders at MSP were able to experience “Microscope Mania” in science class with Mrs. Jeanne Sanders.
They learned how to transport microscopes safely, identified the different parts of the compound light microscope, and learned the use of each part. Once the students viewed the specimen under the microscope, they were able to draw what was seen under the microscope, such as a mosquito mouth, human blood cells, and skeletal muscles.

Students in Mrs. Nikki Smith's Health class at the Middle School of Poplarville are learning about proper hygiene this week.
As a class, they focused on ways to prevent the spread of germs and the correct ways to wash hands. Students were able to participate in the "Glo-Germ" experiment. Each student rubbed the glo-germ powder on their hands, washed their hands, then placed their hands under a black light to see which spots still contained the "germs" (powder).
The students were amazed when they noticed the parts of their hands that were not washed well. The students loved the hands-on experiment and understood the importance of taking time to wash their hands properly!

MSP BETA Club collected items to benefit the victims of the disastrous flooding in Louisiana. "When asked their thoughts about the Louisiana Flood Victim Drive, MSP Beta Club students responded..."
As seen in the news, this flood was a really bad thing! Louisiana is in my prayers... all things will work together for good! - Lana B.
Many of the Louisiana flood victims have lost personal belongings that they may never get back such as pictures and their homes where they shared many memories made. Although these items can never be replaced, people are coming together to donate items like clothing, food, cleaning supplies, and even shelter. I’m pleased to say that people in our community including PRCC, MSP, churches and others have helped by donating simple items that can change the lives of others. - Janna P.
Even though I was only 2 when Hurricane Katrina hit, I have heard stories about how our state and surrounding states came together to help one another. I think we should repay the deed and come together to help Louisiana. I am proud to be a member of the MSP BETA Club, and I am happy to see my classmates contributing to this cause. Remember - If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. - K. Adcox
