Thank you to Mrs. Coggins for making learning Chemistry FUN!

Mrs. Coggins has been requiring her students to write a report and make a mole project each year since the early 1990's. It has become a tradition in her classroom! She enjoys this project with her students because it allows each student to be creative and create any character they wish! What a creative way to honor such a great quanitity...the MOLE! Happy Mole Day to everyone at DHS!
