This summer High School students in both the Academic Model and BEST Models will be collaborating to care for our school garden. Students participated in planting tomato plants and will continue to water them and help them grow.
Thank you to all the parents and family members who came out for our family day on Friday!

Students in our Academic Elementary and BEST Middle Schools participated in the Chick it Out program. They learned about how chickens develop within the eggs, how they hatch, and how to take care of the chickens once they are out of the eggs. Students loved watching the eggs each day and of course watching them hatch!
Students were encouraged to personalize a puzzle piece as part of Autism Awareness Month. Many students answered the question “I am me because…"
BEST Middle learned about the role of the Mayor this week. They visited with Mayor Renner and learned how the council votes (and got to press the buttons, too)! They also sat with the Mayor in his office to learn about what he does!
The BEST Middle School class are getting ready for the chicks to hatch! We spent the last three weeks learning about chick development, the egg structure and strength, and parts of the chicken! Hopefully one hatches today! We did an experiment to learn how strong eggs are! They made a nest out of play dough, set the eggs on the next, and stacked books on them!
Middle school students in both the BEST model and the academic model had the opportunity to earn a trip to Upper Limits, a rock climbing gym. They also got to enjoy a sweet treat afterwards.
During class, BEST Middle students learned about the Humane Society and animal safety. All the students purchased an item for animals at the Dollar Tree and donated them during the tour. At the Humane Society, BEST Middle students learned about how they help animals. They visited with the cats, dogs, and small animals. They also learned more about animal safety.
