Saving Fred the Caterpillar

Save Fred Activity 1


Mrs. McMorris' classroom participated in a STEM activity called Save Fred.  Here is what she had to say about it.

"Save Fred" is an awesome, engaging way to kick off STEM in my classroom! Students work collaboratively, problem solve, and use very fun materials to accomplish the task.  To accomplish the task, students work in groups of two. Each group receives a plastic cup, four paper clips, a gummy worm, and a gummy Lifesaver candy.

Fall Sports

It is already that time of year again!!!  I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer.  We are ready to get things rolling here at Elder Grove Middle School for fall sports.

Our fall sports consist of 5th-8th grade Girls Basketball, 5th-8th Cross Country (boys and girls), and 7th/8th grade football.  In order to play, your student needs to turn in a completed physical, concussion form, COVID sports release form, and activity fee.  These forms are available in the middle school office or on our website at: http://www.eldergrove.k12.mt.us/athleticforms.aspx?form=ath.  If this link does not work, go to the Elder Grove School website, Activities, Helpful Information, and then Activity Forms.  The activity fee for Girls Basketball and Cross Country is $35 and Football is $150.  Please make checks payable to "Elder Grove Activities."  These items all need to be turned in to the middle school office or the respective coach.

Tech Team Field Trip

The 32 members of the Tech Team who were able to go on the field trip Wednesday had a wonderful time. They first went to Yellowstone Ewaste and took a tour of the facility, learned about recycling of electronics, toured the store, and helped tear down some cash registers.

Then they went onto the library where they toured the network setup, created 3D prints, and learned about what the library has to offer. High Point Networks provided lunch for the students.

Thanks to Yellowstone Ewaste, the staff of the library, and Mike at High Point Networks for taking such good care of us!

Thanks to Mr. Hoffman and Riddic Nations for going with us.
