Alabama Power Foundation’s Classroom Program has awarded Mrs. Young’s self-contained classroom with a $1,000 grant to be used for science experiments. Mrs. Young will be teaching life science concepts; specifically cell theory, cell structures and functions to her students. Students will be using DNA testing kits, fold-a-scopes (individual student microscopes that are portable) and prepared slides. Students will also learn about ecosystems, abiotic and biotic parts of an ecosystem, food web, and energy transfer.
Coosa FFA officers Abigail Hyatt and Joseph Weathers represented the Coosa FFA Chapter at the ALFA Youth Leadership Conference in Columbiana on April 29 and 30. This event is hosted by the Alabama Farmers Federation, and the Coosa County Farmers Federation sponsored both young people’s attendance. This conference developed these students’ ability to advocate for agriculture, identify their potential to better serve their communities and prepared them to step into leadership roles.

CES kindergarten students gathered on the playground for the release of the butterflies. The students had fun observing the butterfly life cycle during the last couple weeks and watched as their butterflies were set free and fluttered away over the playground. If you see a Painted Lady in Hanover it may be one of our beauties.
