Band Students Making their Mark

Band Students from this past weekend at Ware County Middle School auditioned against 500 other middle school students across South Georgia for a spot in the GMEA (Georgia Music Educator's Association) District 8 Honor Band. We had eight students audition and all eight score high enough and were selected to be a part of the District 8 Honor Band. They will have a two day clinic and performance in February with the other students that made the District 8 Honor Band.


In the STEM Lab, Mrs. D. Williams’s 7th and 8th grade students are learning the different concepts of Automation and Robotics. One activity that has allowed the students to explore different engineering techniques included building and programming a VEX Robot. The students had the challenge of planning, designing, and constructing the robot. Afterwards, each student had to program his or her robot using ROBOTC program. This allowed students to become familiar with programming language and challenges that a programmer might experience.​
