Three gifted and talented students from Valley Mountain  Middle School in Mexico have been working on an Energy Saving project with school teacher Ann Rains since September. Angela Powell, an eighth-grader, Beth Ferguson and Katie Duguay, seventh-graders, set goals last fall to educate the community about energy and ways to save it. The girls created a puppet show, complete with a colorful 6-foot set and several hand-sewn puppets — Heidi Lopower, Sole R. Power, Wind E. Energy and Bye O. Mass – as a culmination of their energy study. The girls wrote the play script, then performed the show at Meroby Elementary School Friday. Throughout the year they have made posters and written articles for a local newspaper about energy and ways to conserve it. The girls also sent notices to teachers about the wise use of electricity in the classroom and patrolled school hallways to monitor the overuse of electricity.
