On Friday, November 18, Marvin Ridge students competed in the first STEM competition at the Tyson Family Center in Monroe. This Competition included all the middle schools in Union County. There were numerous events students could participate in. The competition included VEX robotics, which involved students building their robot and acquiring points on a designated game board.
The bands of Marvin Ridge held their 4th annual Halloween Concert on October 27th in the MRMS Cafeteria. Over 250 band students in grades 6-8 came together to perform several selections as one large band! Many of the band members were dressed in their various Halloween costumes, accompanied by several festive touches from our band parents in the form of elaborate decorations and seasonal baked goods.
Eighth grade Social Studies and English/Language Arts have teamed up to bring an exciting depth of comprehension to students about our nation’s founding principles. While revisiting historic events and reading the founding documents of American Democracy can be foreign and irrelevant to adolescents, our school is committed to bringing issues of freedom and American exceptionalism to life. Our students will be prepared for a Jesse Watters (Fox News) interview at all times and on any beach in America!
