MMS Students Attend Literature Festival
Moberly Middle School Students attended the 50th Children's Literature Festival in Warrensburg on March 19th. While there,students attended sessions with popular authors and were able to have books autographed. The authors share their stories which often inspires and motivates the students to pursue their own life "stories" to the fullest. MMS has participated in this great event for several years and it remains a highlight of the year for all who participate. Moberly Chapter of Altrusa and the Salvation Army graciously donate money for each student to purchase a book of choice and to help defray the cost of registration. In addition to the time spent with authors, students get to explore the campus experience.
In order for students to attend the festival, they were required to meet attendance and behavioral criteria as well as read and passed quizzes on a minimum of six Truman and/or Mark Twain nominee books for 17-18.

3rd Graders Learn about 3D Printer!
The 3rd graders from Mrs. Orscheln and Mr. Heimann's RtI groups have been working on a project based around geometry skills by creating scale models of house plans. The students asked to see a 3D printer in action creating actual house plans. A trip over to MATC occurred for these students, and they were excited about the experience.
Mr. Hawkins and his students were able to model and discuss their programs and how these apply to a real world experience. Our 3rd graders were thrilled! Thank you to MATC and Mr. Hawkins for making this experience possible.
