VEX Robotics
January, 2017

The MSP VEX Robotics club recently participated in a state-wide competition in Manchester, Connecticut.  As usual, our students excelled at the competitions and brought home awards for their performance. VEX IQ is a snap-together robotics system designed to offer young students a rich and exciting introduction to the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The system encourages teamwork, problem solving, and leadership for students as young as second grade, expanding to challenge students through eighth grade!









Unified Sports Brings Student Athletes Together!
January, 2017 
On January 9, student athletes from from the Middle School and High School competed in a Unified Sports® basketball game with student athletes from Rocky Hill.  Unified Sports is a registered program of Special Olympics. It is a program that combines approximately equal numbers of athletes with and without an intellectual disability on sports teams for training and competition. All Unified Sports players, both athletes and Unified partners, are of similar age and matched by sport skill ability. This is a wonderful experience for all of the students to have fun and grow together.  Yesterday's game was inspirational and a whole lot of fun!  This Tweet from a PHS student says it all: "I almost cried when Shannon scored, and I'm crying now.  Unified is the best thing ever. Playing with these kids out there is life-changing." 








Kindness Counts!
December, 2016 

Recently, the 6th grade students participated in a Counselor Workshop titled "Kindness Counts."  This workshop began with students being read the picture book Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson.  This story uses the analogy of how kindness spreads much like how ripples of water spread when a stone is dropped into water.  Students then each created their own kindness stone identifying acts of kindness they would engage in.  The stones are displayed in the ivy garden near the main entrance.









MSP Book Fair
December, 2016 

The Middle School of Plainville Library held it's annual Book Fair at the Barnes and Noble Book Store in West Hartford on Saturday, December 3.  The MSP Library Information Center received a percentage of books sales for the day.  The event was arranged by Mrs. Joyce Lynch, MSP library information teacher.  The MSP Military Mailroom also participated, with a station for patrons to write holiday cars to be sent to active military personnel here and abroad.  Art work by MSP students was also on display.
