Our Art Club organized a school wide service project for Valentine's Day. Students could meet after school and make valentine cards for family and friends. The students enjoyed working together to send positive messages for Valentines Day. Thanks to Mrs. Sue Schleipman-Burke for all her work with the Art Club.

Our Science Club members get the opportunity to participate in some exciting engineering challenges as we promote STEM education at Whiteside Middle School. For the latest challenge, the students were given 30 minutes to design a hovercraft out of a DVD, balloon, tape, glue, and pop up lid. The students collaborated in teams of three students. Once they designed, built, and tested their hovercraft, they had to create an Olympic sport for their hovercraft. They demonstrated how the Olympic sport would look, described the objective, and determined the rules. Some of the students' ideas were Olympic Bumper Hovercrafts, Olympic Hovercraft Ball, and Olympic Hovercraft Races. Some of the students wanted to improve their design, so they took it home and made modifications. They will be bringing it to the next meeting. and will bring it to the next meeting. Thanks to Dr. Hamilton and Mrs. Phillips for their leadership and dedication to the Whiteside Middle School Science Club.

Service Learning continues to be a big part of our curriculum at Whiteside Middle School. Our Student Council educated our students about the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the life changing services it provides for children who are terminally ill. We had a hat day last week and collected over $200.00 for Make-A-Wish.
