Change Over Time

Eighth graders began the Change Over Time unit. In Social Studies they started researching someone who lived in and around Hurricane Hill during the Civil War. To start off this unit, on Monday, students simulated Civil War surgery. Though interrupted by a fire drill, all were successful in removing the marble (bullet) from the box (limb). We are still awaiting to see if mold develops on bread to see if “infection” was spread by the operation.


Standardized testing for the win!

The Zapatera dance was huge success!
