The picture was taken of the winners of the 'Great Ice Cube Contest'. It was the 2nd part of the contest. Students worked in groups of 3 with the scientific method and thermal energy (which the 1st part was how quickly they could make the ice cube melt not using any kind of 'artificial heat'.) The 2nd part was seeing how long they could go without the ice cube melting. Groups brought in items no bigger than a half size computer paper cubed to make 'ice cube keepers. These 4 groups had more than half their ice cube left 22 hours 55minutes later.

Wave Sportsmanship Recognized

The following is a message received from GWOC Commissioner, Eric Spahr.

"I wanted to send you a quick e-mail to let you know that during the past three weeks I have had the pleasure of spending time with your middle school wrestling team, high school swim team, and high school wrestling team at the GWOC meets.

Please know that it does not go unnoticed at how wonderful your students are and how nice it has been to work with your coaches. I have witnessed great sportsmanship, watched your coaches teach/coach when things didn’t go an athlete’s way, and been able to talk to some of your athletes. It has all been a rewarding experience for me and the conference. I’m so happy to have you back in the GWOC.

Take care, thank you for being a great conference member."
