7th grade students having fun working on a hands on activity to connect the formulas for the volume of prisms and pyramids. Students were able to cut out the nets of four polyhedrons and then fill them with rice to show that the volume of a pyramid is 1/3 the volume of a prism that has a congruent area of the base and height.
The annual Lion’s Club Peace Poster Contest. This year’s theme was “The Future of Peace.” America Pantoja (6th) won the local competition with her piece. She spent time studying and researching US Allies and our most disagreeable, most threatening enemies in world politics at the time. She created this image of the flags representing those nations, within two human figures shaking hands representing peace.Her poster was then sent off to a Regional competition where she also won first place, and was then sent to the State level of competition. We are extremely proud of her thoughtfulness and effort! Way to represent Watson Jr. High!
The Faculty & Staff of Watson Junior High School wishes “Mule Nation” a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 2018!!!
