It's National Psychologist Week. See Dr. Melinda Crenshaw's site for more information about Dutch Fork's school psychologist. DFHS School Psychologist, Dr. Melinda Crenshaw
We are fortunate in the ways she helps us every day.
School Psychology / School Psychologists
"School psychologists are here to help!" We work with students, parents/ families, teachers, and school administrators to meet the needs of individual students and the school. School psychologists are part of the school team. School staff contact the school psychologist at their school when needed to give our students support.
Chemistry CP Classes
Mrs. Twining's chemistry CP classes explored the excitation of electrons in certain chemicals. Students took commonly used chemicals to color fireworks and heated them to see the resulting color change. The students saw red, green, orange, yellow, and pink colors during this flame test lab.
Honey Bee/Pollinator Podcasts
Dr. Vee's students create podcasts to educate the public on the importance of Honey Bees and pollinators in general. The students participated in lectures, researched different aspects regarding the importance of Honey Bees and life as we know it, wrote scripts, and recorded their podcasts. There were several "ah ha" moments that the students experienced as many completed the task.
Dr. Amick's Class Wins Pumpkin Chunkin' Competition
Congratulations to Dr. Amick and her Engineering Design and Development class on winning the USC Fall into Science Pumpkin Chunkin’ Competition 2023 as the Dutch Fork Flying Foxes. The class designed and tested a trebuchet to launch a 2-pound ball as far and as accurate as possible. They launched a total of 131 feet and had the best display and interview. This was their first time entering this competition, but certainly not the last! Way to go Flying Foxes!
