Science Projects

Kirk Wright

Our 9th grade science students in Mr. Wright's class were given a problem to help them not only learn to work together as engineers to solve a problem, but to also use their imagination to solve a problem.  Each group of 3-4 students were given 100 marshmallows and 100 toothpicks.  They were given about 25 minutes to construct a bridge that freely spanned two feet of empty air space and stayed intact for 30 seconds.  It sounds simple, but the reality was that it took some out of the box thinking to get the results they needed.

Red Ribbon Week


We are celebrating Red Ribbon Week this week at MNJHS! Students had the opportunity to hear from the BYU student athletes this morning. They presented on the importance of being physically, mentally and socially strong. Students were encouraged to exercise, eat healthy, maintain high academic standards, never cheat and to treat everybody with kindness and respect. This week we will have dress up days and lunch time activities. Here is the schedule for dress up days:

Monday- Lazy Day (PJ's)
