Science students investigate, capture, create
Mrs. White’s ninth grade biology students, Izabel Whaley and Brynlee Hawthorne, used the microscopes to view cork and bacteria cells: coccus, bacillus and spirillum. They had to draw, as well as describe, what they observed and then make comparisons between the different characteristics of each cell.
Physical science students Kris Leonard, Trenton Dietz and Keland Edwards used a balloon to capture the carbon dioxide gas produced by the reaction of acetic acid and sodium bicarbonate to prove the Law of Conservation of Matter during chemical reactions.
Mr. Mitchell’s environmental science students created biome dioramas of different terrestrial and aquatic biomes such as deserts, grasslands, rainforests, lakes, and oceans to illustrate the various environments and characteristic plants and animals present. They wrote a description of their biome and presented their projects to their classmates.

Government students simulate the lawmaking process
Twelfth grade government students participated in a simulation of the lawmaking process including the introduction of a bill, the committee action, the floor action, and the final step at the president’s desk. After completing the re-enactment students analyzed the process by identifying the current congressional term and session, the leaders in each house based on the majority party, as well as the different actions taken in each step of the lawmaking process and requirements for a quorum and majority vote.
