Submitted by chelsie.young on Wed, 12/20/2017 - 18:35

Sueann's Current Events class spent some time building classroom culture and community by tackling some breakout boxes! Students had to work in teams to complete a set of tasks designed to challenge them and to get them to work together. The first group to open their box won! The competition was cut-throat, with one team coming out ahead miliseconds before the other!

Students in Elinda's English class have been preparing to read the book Night, Elie Wiesel account of his time in a concentration camp. To better understand the author's culture, students learned about Jewish holidays, played dreidel, ate flatbread, fig newtons, gold coins, and learned about other features of Jewish Seders (or feasts).

Last week in Cope's biology classes students became more familiar with the anatomy and function of bones. Among some of the many things students learned in the observational lab, students investigated the role of cartilage and calcium and how they work together for strength and flexibility in the skeletal structure.
