WJE Sixth Grade Student Council and Beta Club collected school supplies for flood victims in Louisiana. These supplies were distributed to many needy school children and brought smiles to their faces. Thank you to our school family for donating so many supplies.


6th grade Star Reach students participated in a Bobbing for Apples STEM project. Each student was given two straws, two pipe cleaners, one popsicle stick, some tape, two paper clips (one large and one small), and a piece of yarn. The students were to engineer a device to collect as many apples out of a tub of water. They could only use the supplies that were given. The students were given a minute to grab the apples.
