Snow Day at Millington Middle School6th grade hall #27th grade hall8th Grade Snow Globe #1

Millington Middle School Art Contest was held last Thursday. People from local businesses volunteered to judge the hall art contest at Millington Middle School. Volunteers were from Patriot Bank, Anna’s Flowers and Gifts, Lowe’s Home improvement and The Millington Star. Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students decorated the halls of the school this week with the theme of “winter wonder land.” The judges were escorted around the halls by principal,              , the school counselor, Keely Webb and sixth grade teacher, Robert Davis. Each hall had a unique touch of winter from paper snowflakes hanging from the ceiling to imitation snow on the floor. The eighth grade hall came in first place with the unique idea of turning the hall into a snow globe with the student acting as the figurines in the globe. In the end they had a fun snowball fight with paper snowballs. In second place was the sixth grade and the two seventh grade halls tied for third place.
