Mrs. Williams' 7th grade Science Chicken Wing Dissection lab

The purpose of this lab was to investigate and observe a chicken wing to learn about the parts of a chicken wing, how these parts, like bones, muscles and tendons, work together and how that translates into movement. Students dissected the chicken, moved around parts internally and got a brief glimpse into how dissection actually works.

NORTH CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL

The Lil’ Lady Canes Basketball team at North Central High School took a trip to their feeder school, Palmetto Elementary, to deliver treats for Valentine’s Day. The team handed out treats to Pre-K through 3rd Grade and assisted the Kindergarten classes make some Valentine’s Day trees. The team also met the 5th grade students to tell them about what to expect as far as discipline and academic expectations to be a future student athlete at North Central. The kids were so appreciative of everything and rewarded the girls with lots of hugs and “thank yous”. Coach Chambers felt that these kids deserve to be treated for working so hard to become an “A” school. Thank you to Palmetto Elementary for allowing the Lil Lady Canes to visit the school and spend time with the kids.
