On the land and in the air, 8th grade Fisher Middle School students have engaged in a variety of S.T.E.M. activities over the past few months (with an engineering design focus): asking questions, identifying problems, implementing research, designing solutions, building models (illustrative and physical prototypes), testing and evaluating their designs, making improvements, and sharing their findings.
The Ewing Public Schools uses Genesis as its student management system. As the district continues to support sustainability initiatives and foster positive school to home communication, we are expanding usage of the Genesis Parent Access. Currently, district wide, parents complete five (5) “opening of school” forms through the Genesis Parent Access. For the 2018-19 school year, there will be six (6) “opening of school” forms as well as other new features. 'Click' for important information!
Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Fisher Middle School and Ewing High School Odyssey of the Mind teams placed 2nd and 1st in the Coastal Plains Regional tournament held in March which qualified both teams to participate in the state tournament. Both teams brought their ‘A’ game to the state tournament and Fisher Middle School brought home the 3rd place state trophy to the District. Congratulations!
