Harrisonville Middle School eighth grade HATS (Harrisonville Academically Talented) students attended the Metro Kansas City Model United Nations Conference at Johnson County Community College on April 6.

The students served as delegates from Chad and New Zealand on and had the opportunity to collaborate and caucus with students from around KC -- to develop, debate, and vote on resolutions. They practiced parliamentary procedure, public speaking, and came away with an appreciation for the daunting task the real United Nations faces in getting countries to work together to address human rights, economic development, and conflict resolution around the world.

HMS students earned recognition at the event including awards to Austin Eng and Garrett Parris for an outstanding position paper from Chad on the Environmental Assembly; Kaydence Grigsby and Brecken Sullivan for an outstanding position paper from New Zealand on the Environmental Assembly and Garrett Parris and Austin Eng for an honorable delegation from Chad.

Pictured are the HMS participants including FRONT ROW: Ben Wooten, Alden Davis, Brecken Sullivan, Eden Thayer, Mia Jackson, and Shelbie Anderson; and BACK ROW: Ayden Cunningham, Brayden Johnson, Ethan Hiser, Garrett Parris, Austin Eng, Kaydence Grigsby, Conner Peeples, and Annie Rhoney.
Congratulations to our students who competed at a state science competition on Saturday! The students qualified for the State Science Olympiad by placing in the top four as a team at the Regional Science Olympiad in early March. The state event was held at Missouri State University.

Individual top 10 finishers included Annie Rhoney and Shelbie Anderson, 5th in Bio Process Lab; Ayden Cunningham and Garrett Parris, 10th in Disease Detectives; Annie Rhoney and Brecken Sullivan, 7th in Ornithology; Conner Peeples and Ben Wooten, 8th in Ping Pong Parachute, and Ben Wooten and Brayden Johnson, 6th in Road Scholar

Today, Jennifer Reed with the Cass County Missouri Historical Society came to talk to our 8th graders about a timely topic - the Sharp-Hopper Log Cabin. With The Log Cabin Festival beginning tomorrow, she shared the history of the cabin and the work by our community to move it and preserve it as a piece of living history. She also asked for the students' help in maintaining the cabin for the future by keeping it clean and discouraging vandalism.

Partnerships like this are what makes our schools & community so great...thanks to Mr. Walters & Mrs. Reed for working together to connect our students with the community!
