The Spookiest Day of the Year Came to MHS

For many students, Halloween wouldn’t be the same without carving pumpkins. The Manchester High School Art Club held its 3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving Competition. The contest had over 20 participants. While some students stuck with traditional jack-o’-lantern faces, other students carved images of Halloween monsters like Dracula. Still, others went with images from favorite TV shows and movies like Shrek. Every participant did a great job!

This year's winners were as follows:

1st Place ($30) - Michaela Thomas (Sesame Seed Hamburger Pumpkin)

2nd Place ($20) - Logan Francis (Gooey Eyeball Snack Pumpkin)

3rd Place ($10) - Rylee Manning (Exposed Scary Brain Pumpkin)

MHS 8th Graders Experience the "Local" World of Technology

The students were given an insight of the operations of GEAE and SOMC, how each business used technology in their organization, as well as the career opportunities offered in the engineer and medical fields.  The students were required to research the businesses before the trip and type a reflection essay to summarize the information they learned.
