Students in Mr. Whiting’s science class watched as he dissected squids to learn about the different cool adaptations and traits that the octopus has. They also learned some of the anatomy of the octopus. Mr. Whiting showed students some of the external anatomy, like the eyes, and he told us about the chromatophores which are things on the skin that make it so the squid can camouflage. Then he cut the squid open with some suture scissors. He showed students things like the gills, ink sack, and the squid pen which gives support to the squid. It was interesting and fun.

A new tradition was started at SFJHS this year by the student council. We celebrated the first annual Kindness Week. There has been so much going on in our world lately, and it is scary to think about what kids these days go through as they grow up. The best way to combat these types of events is to show kindness, acceptance, and love to our peers every day. We all have strengths and gifts to share, and that is what Kindness Week is all about.
