Ms. French's Field Science Class - Students had 2 days to plan and research, and 45 minutes to build an emergency shelter with only natural materials and no tools.
In the story, "Contents of the Dead Man's Pocket", Tom Benecke has to go out on the ledge, eleven stories high, to retrieve a very important work document. The students in Ms. Looper's English IIA class did some team-building activities to mimic being out on the ledge. They had to problem solve how best to get the paper back without dying.
In the short story, "How Much Land Does a Man Need?", the main character, Pahom, gets as much land as he can walk from sunrise to sunset. However, there is a catch! If he is greedy and doesn't make it back to the starting point by sunset, he will lose all of the land he walked. Don't let greed get the best of you. Ms. Looper's English II students entered a similar challenge. They had a minute to run as far as they could, place a marker, and try to make it back before time was called. The person with the farthest marker who makes it back to the starting point, WINS! In first block, Andrew Essenmacher took home the grand prize of a candy bar of his choice.

Always fun to see the band! Practicing hard.
SAT testing day. No phones permitted... not sure if their anxiety is higher for the test or because they don’t have their phones for six hours.
Tuesday A students doing school.
Here’s a glimpse of what is going on at the high school in classes
End of Week One! Thank you to the Staff for all their hard work in getting us ready for the start of school. I have been doing this for 30 years and it was certainly a unique start. It was great to see the students and get them back in the school. Thank you to all the families for your support and patience as we navigate these uncharted waters.
Great first day with the Hybrid A Group! We had a few technical issues in the morning but the rest of the day went well! Thank you to all the parents for your patience and understanding as we navigate this new system! Looking forward to the full virtual day tomorrow - remember all Hybrid students need to log on tomorrow at the scheduled class time. Look in Google Classroom for the link to each hour!
