Community Three's Night At The Museum

Community three has been investigating ways to share history with others.
Our learners determined that they wanted to share history through a museum.

We will have our "Night At The Museum" on Wednesday, December 16 from 6:00-7:00.
The museum will be in the Community Three area.

This opportunity for our learners to share history and what they have made will be a fun night for you and your family. Come join us!

Community Four

Community Five

Students have been working hard on their Exit 16 Redesign Project; they are preparing for their presentation to the Town of Pike Road Planning Commission on Monday.

As part of our unit, one of the Pike Road firefighters talked with our learners

about keeping our community safe. Learners also created
