- The MVMS Science Olympiad team took Fourth Place at the regional Science Olympiad competition held at Carlsbad High school on Saturday, February 4th. There were 117 teams from 35 middle schools competing for top spots. Of the 90 students on our competitive team, 49 teams finished in the top 20, 30 teams placed in the top ten, and 15 teams placed in the top five out of the 117 teams (>1500 students). There were 24 8th graders, 31 7th graders, and 35 6th graders on the team. This accomplishment represents hours of practice, outside of school time, and the diligent support of the coaches and parents who have been helping the team prepare, with weekly meetings, since September. Congratulations to all the students for their hard work and excellent performance. We cannot express enough gratitude to the parents, coaches, volunteers, and sponsors who helped to make this happen. MVMS will go on to the State competition in April.
