TEM Talk Contest
There is a wonderful opportunity for our students to show all they know and love about STEM with Georgians and those beyond! The annual Georgia Science Teachers Association (GSTA) annual STEM Talk contest. Modeled on our very own KidTalk Cobb, and the revolutionary TED Talks, it’s a video-based speaking and communication contest that gives relevant and real world meaning to hands-on and high level learning… just the things for which MVES students are well known.
This year’s video prompt is “How is STEM helping me thrive during the Covid-19 pandemic?” Entries are submitted on video, 5 minutes or less, and are due Sunday, November 1. The contest is open to K-12 students. One child at elementary (middle, and high) will be selected to be honored and win $100.00 award/scholarship but the greater prize is the excitement and reward of connecting their lives to the world around them.
Application is here. Promotional flyer is here. All details are here.
Our STEM Specialist, Dr. Zielinski, is excited to support your child if you have questions. We would love to see your child shine and use their voice to share all they’re learning, doing, and loving about STEM in a time of Covid-19. #everystudenteveryday #OneTeamOneGoalStudentSuccess
The PTA is actively planning this year’s silent auction which will be online November 9th-13th . It will conclude November 13th via zoom with a DJ and virtual trivia night. We are currently gathering donations from businesses and families to be auctioned off and need your help!
We are hoping to create a small variety of baskets we can assemble this year instead of doing classroom baskets. We have put together a few themed baskets with a wish list that anyone can purchase from and ship directly to the silent auction committee.
Nerf Basket: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3CHDCBHQ1GKBS?ref_=wl_share
Star Wars Basket: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3T68Z8QO33AVU?ref_=wl_share
Arts & Crafts Basket: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/MROWL61P6Z45?ref_=wl_share
In addition we will do a collection of any new and unused donations that might be made into a variety of other baskets (such as Cooking, Home Edit, Family Game night, etc). These could be items you have on hand or additional items you would like to purchase to donate towards a basket. We will have a collection box at 3388 Saxony Glen on the front porch from October 19-23. We will use these donations to create a variety of fun baskets.
Thank you for your support,
Silent Auction Committee
