Art Contest

Art Foundations students were challenged to create a unique gingerbread house using only cardboard and found objects. They worked in teams of 2 and had 2 weeks to complete their house. The students then voted for the top 2 projects in their class. The top houses were then voted on by the high school faculty. In first place was Hannah Tilley and Katelyn Collins with their Rapunzel tower. In second was Ashley Williams and Kaitlyne Gillen with their Pink Palace from Coraline, and in third was Lauren Clements and Haylee Bilyeu with their Hagrid's Hut.

Dual Credit Students Enjoying the Holidays

Librarian Karen Smith and her dual credit students were caught spreading Christmas cheer with hot cocoa and cookies. The dual credit students also participated in some dazzling tree decorating.

Computer Science combined with 3D Printing

Logan Clements is pictured with his replica of a Macintosh computer. He designed the mother board and created the computer shell on his 3D printer. The computer will run a text demo and eventually have 3D graphics.
