Stained Glass Project 2015

Last week, Whitewater Middle School invited Sonja Kipper to work with our 7th and 8th grade art students. Mrs. Kipper is a local artist and former high school teacher who specializes in stained glass work. For two years, she has teamed up with our students to create a series of stained glass panels that are now on display in the WMS main office. Students had the opportunity to practice the art of glass cutting and also wrapped glass pieces with copper foil to prepare them for soldering. Mrs. Kipper with be joining us again in April to perform her final soldering demonstration before the panel is completed. This year's panel is in the final stages and is scheduled to be installed in the next two months.
7th Grade Math Meet Winners

7th grade Math 24 Meet
On Thursday, March 12, 7th graders from Whitewater Middle School participated in a Math 24 Challenge Meet hosted by Whitewater Middle School. The meet was sponsored by the Whitewater TAG network of area gifted and talented coordinators.  It involved 7th graders from four other area schools in addition to 6 Whitewater students.  Students first played two rounds of the Math 24 game using fraction cards, which involves finding a series of equations to equal 24 using 4 numbers on a card. The final two rounds were played using decimal cards in which students find equations to equal 24, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimal numbers. 
Whitewater students did extremely well, earning all six of the trophies for their top scores as follows: 1st place-Josie Hintz (316 points), 2nd place-Shawn Chan, 3rd place-David Kromholz, 4th place-Jordyn Korf, 5th place Abby Grosinske, 6th place-Colin Chenoweth.
We believe Josie's score may set a record high for our school and it was very exciting to have every student on the team earn a trophy!
Results by school –
Whitewater – 1061 points!
Clinton – 377 points
Waterloo – 265 points
Edgerton – 210 points
Jefferson – 201 points
We are very proud of the entire Math 24 team!  Their hard work and focus really paid off for them.  Congratulations!
