  • You Be the Chemist

    Hammond Westside Montessori is proud to announce that we had several participants that represented our school in the You Be the Chemist Challenge which was held at SLU on Friday, January 29, 2016.  They all represented our school with dignity and respect.  Taylor Crawford, Noah Holman, and Nathan Gendron,   six grade students in Mrs. Alanna Langla and Mrs. Angela Bradford's classes were among the top 20 scorers selected to participate in the challenge to earn a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place finish. Nathan went on to finish first out of over 300 students participating!  Congratulations to all of our participants for earning a nomination from their teachers to attend the event.

    The You Be The Chemist Challenge® is an interactive academic contest that encourages students in grades 5-8 to explore chemistry concepts and their real-world applications.
