TKMS Spellers FInish in Top Three at Regional Bee

Aaron Michalk and Payton Stewart finished in the top three at the regional spelling bee hosted at TK Middle School.

Thornapple Kellogg Middle School students Aaron Michalk and Payton Stewart were both in the final three spellers at the regional spelling bee hosted at TKMS Thursday afternoon, but both went out in the 15th round.

TKMS Science Students Shake Things Up in Class

TKMS students put their engineering projects to the test on an earthquake simulator.

Clayton Wandell held his breath a little as he settled his team’s tower on the earthquake simulator.
“This should be good,” he said as his Thornapple Kellogg eighth grade science teacher Shaun Davis started the earthquake simulator, slowly, then pushed the throttle to make the shaking more significant.
It wobbled. It shook, but the tower didn’t break. Students cheered when the first structure withstood Round 1 of testing.

Spelling Bee Champions Crowned

Middle School spelling bee champion, a first and second runner up are crowned.

Payton Stewart was crowned the champion with Aaron Michalk as the first runner-up and Trysta Hilton as the second runner-up for the middle school spelling bee. Payton and Aaron will compete in the regional spelling bee Feb. 16 at TKMS. Great job by all participants and good luck to Payton and Aaron at the regional contest.
