Meteorologists in Training

Eighth-grade students in Melissa Valenti’s earth science class are working in the library media center this winter to both inform and entertain the student body about the capricious winter weather. 

Each week, different students use their new knowledge of Weather Synoptics, computer models and forecasting to become local weather reporters for the MSHS’s weekly video production, “TGI Tiger News.” 

In addition, students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to have some fun for a good cause. With a donation of nonperishable food to be delivered to a local food bank, contestants can select a day in hopes of a delay, early dismissal or snow day. Winners will receive tasty treats!
