Reading, writing and arithmetic are some of the academic areas offered during the After School Programs at Stemmers Run Middle School, but that is just the tip of the iceberg!  Recently, Stemmers Run's principal, Mr. Jay Ward, invited students and their families to join him for their Annual Gallery Night to showcase those areas as well as many others.

Stemmers Run Middle School encourages their students to get involved and be proactive while they learn.  Gallery Night 2012 was no exception.  Students were able to develop chess strategies with Mr. Weiss and his chess team, then turn around and create structures using marshmallows and toothpicks with the Engineering Club.  They lined up to get their faces painted while just a few feet away, others learned how to dissect a frog at the Science Club display.  Students learned about the African American experience and its contribution to American History with Mr. Goodrich's and Mr. Hoffman's Black Saga display.  One of the biggest displays came from Mrs. Bartosch's World Cultures classes.

They created very informative service learning video announcements, bumper stickers and posters that focused on the rainforest and endangered species.  Some of the other clubs represented included Math 24 Club, Student Government Association, National Junior Honor Society, Glee Club, Social Studies, Language Arts & Reading, Science Technology, SADD, Engineering & Math, and Future Educators of America.

Before heading home, all were invited to the auditorium to enjoy musical selections performed by Mr. Larsen's choral classes and Mrs. Bennett's band members.  What a perfect way to end such a delightful evening!
