This last weekend, on April 20 and 21, members of our school’s National Junior Honor Society joined together to help with a BSA Eagle Project. The Eagle Project was for Caleb Pollock, a student at our school. The project began with clearing rocks from the school’s field. Shortly afterward, the volunteers helped to clear rocks off the retaining walls on the east side of the school. The next morning, the rocks were completely removed and the volunteers helped to spread mulch where the rocks had been. The area is now much safer without rocks falling from the walls, and it looks better too.
In Mr. Madsen’s and Mr. Whiting’s science classes, the students had a great learning experience. They headed outside to a timeline in the track field to observe and learn about the Earth. Students learned about the Earth over time, and they learned about the geologic and biologic points of it. There were multiple stations to learn about. For example, the Precambrian, Phanerozoic, Cenozoic, and Quaternary periods.
Last week, Mr. Gibson’s art class had a final project for their term on the watercolor technique. They were given one week to create a project on watercolor paper that was uniquely their own. Some of the projects featured flowers, cactuses, dancers etc. Each one was made with compassion and style of their very own.
