MESMS 6th graders join the Iron Will Kids Club!

Thanks  to a generous grant from the Foundation for Excellence in Yorktown, sixth grade students in MESMS had the wonderful opportunity to participate in the Iron Will Kids Club, a power up Wellness Program.  Students learned many things such as where does food come from, how to become a food detective, and how food powers you to play sports or ace a quiz.  Activities that the students participated in ranged from starting seeds, making smoothies, and taste-testing foods from different cultures such as lentils, kimchi, and wakame!
