Mary Ellen Henderson 8th grader, Greg Wohlford, placed 2nd out of 325 entries in the Virginia International Aviation Art Competition. Based on the theme "Flying Saves Lives," Wohlford's work will be featured with other winners soon on the Virginia Department of Aviation website and Virginia Aviation newsletter.
Pictured above is MEH art teacher Debbie Baird, Wohlford, and Principal Seidah Ashshaheed.
Both Mary Ellen Henderson teams had an impressive showing at this weekend's Odyssey of the Mind NoVA Prime Regional Tournament. Both MEH teams emerged victorious, blending left and right brains to compose and perform original comedic skits based around engineering projects they designed to solve specific problems, as well as solving unpredictable creative and spontaneous tasks. Congratulations to all of our participants!

Nineteen students brought some fierce competition to the 1st Annual 7th grade Battle of the Books. Over the course of 3 months, participants read books from the 2013 Virginia Reader's Choice books trying to remember the plot twists, characters, settings, and conflicts so they could answer questions about the books.
Mary Ellen Henderson 7th Grader Sameer Miglani recently scored among the top 100 school level geography bee champions in Virginia and thus won the title of Virginia National Geographic Bee Semifinalist.
He will be traveling to Longwood University next month to compete in the state level of the National Geographic Bee.
