Bunks at our Taylorsville Outdoor Ed site!

Thank you to Mr. Brown and Mr. Hardig's shop classes for the bunks at our Taylorsville site. These 9 bunks were inaugurated this week by 18 QJSHS 8th grade girls. Thank you to all that made this happen: Mr. Brown, Mr. Hardig, students at CJSHS and GJSHS, Sierra Pacific Industries for the donated lumber, Rob Wade for coordination and our maintenance staff for assisting with the installation. A true team effort!

From Lynne Koeller

Here is one of our modified assignments in Social Studies by our low incidence students on Certificate track at CHS.


They did such a great job, I needed to share!

They learned about their community, used technology, made it more visual and it's so much more relevant to them than a foreign country!


Enjoy the short movie,


Lynne, Meg, An & Za
