Just squidding! There were no games, only serious science. The students in Cope and Emily's class took on a squid dissection lab today. They gained a better understanding of the internal and external morphology of phylum Mollusca, class Cephalopoda. I have an 'ink'ling the students will remember this lab the next time calamari is on the menu!
It's time to pick a winner! Students should log in to their email and follow the link to select their favorite cover. This year's contest had 5 amazing submissions. You can see this incredible art in person in the display case in the English hallway. Go to your email and vote for the best one!
Students got a taste of the risks and rewards of investing in the stock market in class today. US History teachers Chelsey O. and Chelsie Y. ran their classes through a simulated stock exchange with the help of fellow teachers. Students bought, sold, and traded stocks and capitalized on increased market shares. There was an inevitable market correction, followed by tumbling values, and an eventual crash. Better luck next time!
Janna Manookin has been working hard to help students complete the last few credits they need to graduate. Located in the library section of Landmark High School, the Student Support Center provides a quiet dedicated space to allow students to work. Pop by and see what the SSC can do for you!
Our Thanksgiving feast tradition continued this week as the Landmark Family gathered for a delicious dinner! There was turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, sweet potatoes, rolls, dressing, and pumpkin pie for everyone- with second helpings if you wanted them. The faculty, staff, and administration served up the food and the students brought the fun and good times. Special thanks go to Kristeene Zeeman for coordinating every detail of the entire meal, and SueAnn and her Leadership students for setting up, decorating!
