PROJECT BASED LEARNING: WORKING on REAL SOLUTIONS!

Mrs. Gardner's Challenging Academic Time (CAT) class, Project Based Learning, continues to make an amazing impact on our school. Students recently identified issues around the school, researched them and studied possible solutions. One group of 6th graders sought to understand the main causes of conflicts among students on campus. They surveyed over 100 students and asked questions of the administrators. They identified the top two reasons for conflicts were drama at school and social media. They then made a poster showing their results. The poster is now displayed in the 6th grade halls. They will continue to work with school officials to discuss solutions on how to prevent conflicts among students at school. Congratulations to the members of this group which include Daisy Campos, Aubrie Cochran, Cara Hill, and Donnavin Percell. Great work, Wildcats!

AMENDED CALENDAR

The calendar for the 2022-2023 school year was recently updated. Please click on the link to view the amended calendar.

SWEET SOCIAL STUDIES

Students in Mr. Parks' AP Human Geography class had a sweet lesson today. After feasting on donuts as a reward for their hard work this week, they used candy to solidify their understanding of race and ethnicity. Mr. Parks skillfully used Skittles and M&M's to help students comprehend the difference between race and ethnicity while introducing other concepts such as nationalism and nation states. To top off this tasty experience, these students will finish middle with high school credits before they enter 9th grade. Way to go, Wildcats!
