A COOL THING HAPPENED IN CLASS...
Our gym students are in the middle of their Pickleball unit! Coach Butts and Ms. Mangold have been showing students videos to explain the game and have created a Pickleball tournament!
Mr. Hojka's strings class is working on a Scottish bagpipe tune called "Atholl Highlanders." It sounded beautiful lofting through the hallways!
6th Grade Social Studies classes have been taking part in the "Too Good for Drugs Program" with our social worker Mr. Hairston.
Social Studies students from each grade participated in the Social Studies Fair this week! Projects in Geography, Economics, Psychology, US & World History were included. Thank you to all of the community members who served as judges and to Ms. Updike for organizing the event.
Ms. Amavisca's art students completed the continuous line drawing challenge. Students were allowed to draw whatever they wanted, but were instructed to not lift up their marker. So many interesting creations resulted!
