Colorful slime gelled and circuits connected recently during Rocket Family Night at Kelloggsville Middle School.


Five classrooms were set up with hands-on science experiments for students of all ages to experience. Each allowed youngsters to create something to bring home, such as paper airplanes and slime. Rocket Family Night is a district initiative to offer the community a free meal and an evening tied to academics.


“We want parents to get into the buildings and the district. We also want our students to know how fun some of the subjects can be if you give them a chance,” said Middle School Principal Jim Alston.


Along with going through lots of science supplies, staff served more than 250 plates of food.
