Michael is an eighth grader who has grown immensely in his years with us at High Road. He began taking Technology Education at Snow Hill Middle School this year, learning how to build and make simple machines work. The class was given the assignment to create a project of their choice out of wood. The obstacle tentatively standing in Michael’s way, was using the heavy duty cutting machines. He had some fears about using the machine safely to complete his task, however he came up with a great idea, and he really wanted to see it through. With the [...]

Senior Skyler A. has been working hard over the past few weeks in his Physics class. The class has been constructing vehicles for a race, and Skyler created a mousetrap race car as his entry with help from Meghan, one of our assistant teachers.

Milkshake Time

Snow Hill High School has been mixing up their Fun Fridays, lately. Staff feels it's important to have different types of rewards and reinforcements so that students don't become bored with the same thing week after week. So we decided to have a milkshake party as a reward for everybody’s hard work all week staying on blue level. First we showed them how to use the blender safely, and then the students created their own customized shakes, with ice cream and different toppings of their choice. Pictured are senior Skyler and freshman Dustin mixing up their personalized [...]

One student expressed that they liked putting eyes on their critter because it was like a little friend! Other students really liked the camouflage yarn.

The Science of Ice Cream Making

We kicked off our year in science in a sweet way by making our own ice cream from scratch. Our students precisely followed the recipe by combining half & half, sugar, and vanilla extract into a small bag; in a large bag we combined ice and kosher salt. Then we placed the small bag inside of the large bag and shook the bags. The ice and salt reacted, causing the half & half mixture to freeze into the ice cream. The students had a great time laughing and joking about how cold their hands were while shaking the bags [...]
