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.
