Congratulations to MVP Geo Bee Winners by Mrs. Jodi Zienka
A Tiebreaker ending to our school Geography Bee as Sterling Sorensen was named the Champion and Sierra Romero the runner-up. In the championship round, Sterling and Sierra were both able to identify Canada as the setting for Jack London’s classic novel, The Call of the Wild. In the Tiebreaker round, Sterling was able to identify Greece as the Mediterranean country with Europe’s largest cotton export business. Way to go! Kevin Van Aken earned third-place in the competition. Sterling will be taking a paper test to determine competing in the state Geography Bee on March 27, 2015.
Congratulations to all our participants that earned their place in the school Geography Bee by winning their classroom geography bee. Impressive geography skills were displayed by all!

Bringing Uruguay to the U.S. Classroom
Mrs. Reay's son, Logan Reay was a guest speaker in Spanish class in December at MVP. He shared some of the cultural differences between Uruguay and the United States. Students were baffled by the the tremendous differences between nations, and learned the importance of learning other languages.
Robotics on the Move
MVP Robotics clubs, Astromechs and Ocelot-bots, met at the World Class Challenge in Flagstaff, Dec. 6. This all day event involved the robotics game challenge, Core Value judging and Project Judging. Mrs. Forester's Ocelot-bot team was awarded the Core Value Trophy and Matthew Burnett was awarded the Youth Mentor Award. Both teams met new people, competed with "Gracious Professionalism" and are looking forward to next year's challenge "Trash Trek."
8th Grade E-Lab
Mrs. Rhoda's 8th grade class participated in an e-Lab on Chemical Reactions in November. The e-Lab, won by Mrs. Rhoda at the Technology Consortium last summer, was presented by The Challenger Learning Center in West Virginia. During this lab, students observed various chemical reactions. They then had to prove the Law of Conservation of Matter by balancing the chemical equation that went along with each reaction. Students were also asked to name the type of reaction that they observed. Pictured from left to right are Sage Moore, Joanna Westling, Shelby Brenner, Manuel Robinson and Bri Hunsicker.
