April-May Updates - Celebrating student accomplishments in and beyond school walls


 Marie Reed

Over the last month, the students of Marie Reed have been making us proud in all areas.  At the city-wide STEM festival on June 1, eight of our students presented their science projects, and two projects won in their categories!  Brayden (4th grade) won 1st place in Computer Science, and Aaron, Heizel, and Jose (5th grade) won 2nd place in Robotics & Intelligent Machines. 


Fifth graders Bayani, Chelsy, and Billy also won the Law Day Contest, sponsored by Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor and had the opportunity to read their essays at the Supreme Court. 


Third grader Aiden got to announce the start of the Nationals Game on DCPS Night.  


Finally, 5th grader Emely Gonzalez won 3rd place in the city-wide Spanish Spelling Bee!  We are so proud of all of our panthers.

Congratulation to our 7th and 8th grade 2019 eCybermission Winners: Dionna Crisp-Jones, Nia Turner, Syiion Robinson, Shoza Kakinohana, Alec Mitchell, Kimani Johnson, and Khalia Sims. eCYBERMISSION is a web-based science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) competition free to students in grades six through nine that promotes self-discovery and enables all students to recognize the real-life applications of STEM. Teams of three or four students are instructed to ask questions (for science) or define problems (for engineering), and then construct explanations (for science) or design solutions (for engineering) based on identified problems in their community. Students compete for State, Regional, and National Awards. The U.S. Army is committed to answering the Nation’s need for increased national STEM literacy and to expanding STEM education opportunities across the country to open doors to new career paths for American students that lead to a brighter tomorrow.
