Sociology/Psychology fieldtrip to Amish country

Mr Bardwell's Sociology and Psychology classes traveled to Davies County to visit an Amish farm and school. The students had a great time experiencing this subculture. The farm is owned by Norman Graber. Students were allowed to tour the inside of the house and explore the various other parts of the farm.

The students then took a hayride to the Oak Ridge Amish school. Once at the school the students enjoyed a selection of songs by the Amish students, introductions by everyone, and a question and answer time. Following lunch at the school, the Raiders took on Oak Ridge in our annual softball game - falling 15-12. After the game our students purchased homemade bread, peanut butter, and cinnamon rolls. It was a fun day and great cultural experience!

Key Club

Key Club members Karli Meyer and Molly Jochem attended the annual Indiana Key Club District Convention in Muncie on April 1-3. Highlights of the trip included gaining new ideas to help our club be better organized and more active. At the convention, Indiana Key Clubs from across the state pledged to collectively raise $100,000 in the next 5 years for Riley Children's Hospital. To help reach that goal, we have taken part in two fund raisers recently (the Kiwanis Car Show and the Dubois County 5K/Fun Run) that allowed us to donate $475 to the organization! Thank you to all who helped us make such an impact.
