Let it Snow!

The first real snow of the season started sticking around noon and didn't let up! Students had fun slipping, sliding, and building in the soggy snow. It's starting to feel like the Holiday Break is just one week away!

Squid Game

Submitted by Carrie.pingel on Thu, 12/02/2021 - 22:17

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!

Leadership Journals

Students in Sue's leadership class learned to craft their own journals. They used the tools and techniques to create their very own works of art from paper, string, and leather. Not only do they look fantastic, but they have a great functional purpose!

The Stock Market Crashes in US History Class

Submitted by Carrie.pingel on Tue, 11/30/2021 - 19:23

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!
