Instrumental Music Students Receive “Superior” Rating
On Friday, May 29th, the Wyoming Valley West Middle School Band and Honors Orchestra performed in adjudication in Ephrata, PA.  The performances included 125 dedicated middle school students.  Following their performances, both groups were awarded the highest possible rating of “superior.”  The judges had many positive comments about the talent and skill level of the students in the group, the result of hard work and commitment.  The Middle School Jazz Band also had the opportunity to perform in several special events this year for the first time, including the Music in Our Schools Month Celebration at the Wyoming Valley Mall and the 60th anniversary of the Fine Arts Fiesta.  Earlier in the year, several band students received top honors when participating in the Marywood Junior High Wind Band Celebration.  Eight students were selected to attend the festival from the Wyoming Valley West Middle School; these students represented the top 5% of top musicians from six counties grades 7-9.  Of the eight students who attended, five placed into the Honor Band that represented the top 1% to area musicians.  Honor Band students included Mollie McFarland, Adam Sivak, Jena Pursell, Matthew Nogin and Brendan Woods.  Brendan Woods placed first in his section, ranking first in the region.  We are looking forward to another great school year in 2015-2016, when number of students participating in the 7th and 8th grade bands at the Wyoming Valley West Middle School will include more than 100 students.

Science Olympiad
Wyoming Valley West Students participated in the 2015 Science Olympiad.
 
Science Olympiad is an American elementary school, middle school and high school team competition in which students compete in 'events' pertaining to various scientific disciplines, including earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Over 6,700 teams from 50 U.S. states compete each year. There are multiple levels of competition; invitational, regional, state, and national. In addition, some states or private groups offer 'invitational' tournaments which serve as practice for regional and state competitions. Teams which excel at regional competitions advance to the state, and then to the national level. Winners later receive several kinds of awards from ribbons to trophies.
 
Wyoming Valley West has entered two teams in the competition. The ‘B’ team is comprised of 6th through 9th grade students and the ‘C’ teams members are in 10th through 12th grade. WVW faculty assists the team members with instructions and questions regarding their events but the students do the majority of work on their own.
