The gym at Midway Middle School was bustling with activity on March 20 as approximately 300 people participated in the “Spring Fling Curriculum Night.”
Core subjects like math, science, language arts and social studies were included in the event. Math concepts covered included fractions, decimals, percents, three dimensional shapes, estimation and probability.
Students had fun exploring polymers and making slime and oobleck at stations manned by the science department.
Families traveled the globe in two activities, one using latitude and longitude and the other using their knowledge of country facts.
The Language Arts department offered activities using sentence structure, grammar and mind benders. Incentives such as extra credit were offered to students for attending.
Free refreshments and door prizes also were provided.
