The Ben's Bells Project
Lauffer adopted the "Be Kind" phrase this year as a way to counteract bullying. Our Student of the Month celebrations honored students for being kind. The Kindness Club and Advanced Art students took part in creating a beautiful mural that is now on the front of the Lauffer Building. Stop by and take a look at it.

Arizona Future City Competition
On Saturday, January 25th, twenty-four Lauffer Middle School students participated in the Arizona Future City competition at the Phoenix Convention Center. Students were required to present their Future City and transportation system within 7-minutes to a panel of judges and live audience.
Future City is a national STEM-engineering initiative and competition to inspire students to enter fields of engineering. Students work in teams of three and use the engineering design process to tackle a real-world problem in American cities. This year, the challenge was to create a sustainable and innovative transportation system to move people effectively and efficiently around a city of the future.
A team of three-6th grade students from Lauffer, James May, Kobe Howard and Ramon Cazares, took home a technical award for their 3-D city model; Best Land Survey Practices. Their city is titled, Magnetic Tronum and relies upon magnetic powered public trains, taxis, and cars. The Magnetic Tronum model is on display at Lauffer Middle School. Approximately twenty individual awards were given to teams from Arizona meeting the best standards or performance in a specific category.
Jackie Nichols is the teacher of the Future City STEM class and Mr. Loren Makus is the volunteer engineer. For questions, Ms. Nichols can be reached at 545-4934 or firstname.lastname@example.org
