Attention ALL Rio Mesa Spartans! Teachers, students, staff!  Please join ASB in a pumpkin decorating contest.  Flyers have been placed in teachers mailboxes, so please refer to the flyer for the different categories.  You can decorate the pumpkin as a class, or individually.  The pumpkins have to be brought by the 29th and they will be placed on the quad stage for all to vote on.

VC Star: A huge thank you to the VC Star for highlighting our flourishing IB Programme!

Biology Honors students finished the Mcmush lab and designed a diet from just ok McDonald’s menu items for a day to see if they could still get the right calorie intake.

Biology CP and Honors students worked with Anna Litz from the Farm to School program to create their own biodegradable planters and planted seeds.

Biology AP, Honors and CP students created bath bombs to learn more about acids and bases.

On Oct. 11th Ms. Oliff’s students were shot building their portfolio websites for @TheGlobalGoals projects and blogging.  She is so proud of the struggle.
