Flat Elliot Pops Up Again

Flat Elliott and ET came to visit Lockerman Middle School this week! The student’s were busy with their academics for the first day Elliot and ET were out in the classroom, because they weren’t even noticed. Students sat at the kidney table and read the letter sent with Elliot telling about his journey, and looked at the pictures of him with other High Road schools. After learning a little about him, the students got to take turns taking pictures with him around the classroom. It was a fun day! Visit our [...]

Native American History

As we continue our lessons on Native Americans, students at Denton Elementary decide to take a "road trip" to Arizona to visit the Hopi tribe. The students learned 3 key vocabulary words when discussing the tribe: Kachina, Adobe, and Irrigation. They are even able to recall the definitions of these words when Ms. Suzy asks for the first letter of each word. At the end, the students made their own Kachina dolls. Each one is representative of an aspect of the Hopi life. What's my K word? KACHINA!!! Visit our website to [...]

In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb

During group projects, the students learn valuable friendship skills and how to be respectful of others. During this month students learned the old saying "March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb." They made lambs to go with the saying. The wall outside our classroom is decorated with their lambs and flowers made during group project. We see some up and coming artists! Visit our website to learn more about High Road School

A Little Class Competition

At NCHS with the weather breaking and beautiful days we have been having, staff offered an incentive. Remain on task and follow directions, we will go to the football field. Students really enjoyed getting out to get some fresh air, play football, jump hurdles and listen to music. Students wanted a race to see who was the fastest with Mr. Jack & Mr. Mike accepting the challenge as well. Everyone was a great sport and the best part is, the whole class earned it!

Stress Slime

In Environmental Science class Dylan explored ocean and wind currents. He blew air through a straw against a tub of water to simulate what happens to the ocean when wind gusts occur. Dylan observed what happened on the surface of the water as well as what happened below the surface. He sprinkled pepper on the surface of the water to make it easier to visualize the surface current. He used drops of dye to visualize what was going on underneath the surface. Several different currents were constructed, such as gyres (circular flows) and currents that flowed around obstructions, representing [...]

The Flat Elliot Tour Continues

Earlier today, Flat Elliot and ET visited the Cosmetology classroom in the Caroline Career and Technology Center (CCTC). Kennara, a 10th grader in High Road at NCHS, joined the Cosmetology program at the start of second semester this school year and was happy to show them around her new stomping grounds. Kennara took Flat Elliot and ET on a small tour of the classroom in which she spends 3 out of 4 class periods in each school day. As an added bonus, Kennara gave ET some helpful pointers to help with maintaining his blonde wig! [...]

Environmental Science

Recently in Environmental Science, Kennara has been working on observing and comparing Earth materials. Today’s lesson was a Groundwater Model Lab Simulation where we engaged in a hands on lesson that gave us a greater view of Well Drilling. During the simulation, Kennara layered Earth materials while pouring water as a demonstration of rain, then had to use a pipet to “drill” for water and record her observations. Kennara was surprised to learn how the different Earth materials affect the flow of water. Visit our website to learn more about High Road School [...]

Iroquois Longhouses

For the last month, Denton Elementary students have been working on their Iroquois unit. We learned about the music, clothing, sports, and housing the Iroquois used. As part of the unit; students designed and constructed their own longhouses! Visit our website to learn more about High Road School
