Science Fair @ Weeks


Our students have been planning, preparing and experimenting for months. Now all of their hard work is put to the test as scientists, engineers, teachers and college students ask students to defend their findings.

Weeks Means… Thinking of Others


7th Grade students worked together in friendly competition for a student designed Service Learning Project. Advisory classes brought in their change for the Penny War! Together we raised nearly $200 to donate to the Animal Rescue League.

Weeks honors veterans for Veteran’s Day


Students and staff at Weeks honored our brave veterans and soldiers. Our school chorus performed patriotic songs and students wrote thank you cards to veterans. As a final honor students wore red, white and blue colors to form our American Flag. We thank our brave men and women veterans for their sacrifice and service.
