This week Mr. Madsen’s science students started reviewing for the end of year SAGE test. Trying to remember all the way back to the beginning of the year, the students got packets to review. The packets were filled with plenty of great things about gravity, mass, forces, and many more. The students were assigned to get in groups of two with the people at their table. The students took turns reading paragraphs of the review sheets and annotating their papers. By the time SAGE comes around, they will be ready to ace the test.

Board Game Club was a club that started in 3rd term.  It is over, but Parker Coe, who ran it, wants to do it again next year.  It was a fun club, with lots of different games. Kids played whatever games they wanted, and there were many to choose from. Some favorites were Bang the dice game, King of Tokyo, and Codenames.  Some others included Liggretto, Fugi Flush, Kingdomino, and Dimensions.  There were lots of new games that people hadn’t seen.  New games were brought almost every week.

Pepper the Guinea Pig came into Mr. Madsen’s class today for the second time, surprising many students. As the classes continued on, students looked at her with adoration. All of the students from fifth period to seventh period had seen and petted her before, so this was a first for the first four periods of students. Mr. Madsen held and petted her often, and she is simply adorable according to most students.

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.
