Sophia Cashman-Dibiase and Hailey Roncevich display their models of a cell as they learn about the organelles inside the cell that work together. This was a project they worked on in Ms. Isbell's 7th grade Science class. Yum!
New Computers for KPMS
Justin Mesker and Scott Haines are two of the first KPMS students to use the newly acquired library computers. Students have been excited to begin using the new technology installed at KPMS. Besides a new set of computers, the library also acquired two additional classroom sets of Google Chrome notebooks to be used in the library or in classrooms. In addition, a new large, portable monitor will be coming to the library for instruction, presentations and other uses to show videos or powerpoints. A huge thanks to the school district technology department for their support in these new resources!!
KPMS Named State Finalist
Key Peninsula Middle School is proud to announce that we have become a Washington State Finalist in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest. The purpose of this nationwide competition is to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by challenging teachers and students to take topics out of traditional classroom settings and into local communities.
In addition to being awarded two Samsung Galaxy Tabs, teacher Richard Miller will receive a professional development course from PBS Teacherline.
KPMS has involved students in real-life and STEM activities for the past 10 years. This is the cornerstone of our school." said Principal Jeri Goebel.
Key Peninsula Middle School has moved onto this round of the competition for their interest in using STEM to study water quality and the massive sea star die off on the pacific Coast. KPMS is one of four other schools in Washington to become a state finalist in the Solve for Tomorrow contest. During the next phase of the competition, the KPMS Science Team will create a detailed hands-on lesson plan to address the issue in an educational setting.
Fifty-one state winners will be announced in early December.
