High Road School: Worcester County

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 [...]

Stay Calm and Use Critters!

We are keeping our cool with calming critters at Snow Hill Middle School! In group we often talk about different coping skills to use when we are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, upset, or angry. Students expressed that they would use their calming critters when they feel anxious because it is soft. 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.

Student Showcase

Our Student Showcase for the month of January is one of our two seniors, Johnathan. He is being recognized for showing immense caring and compassion.

With the teachers permission and the help of our resident social worker, he sprung into action and proceeded to warm the bird's wings then put it back in the woods where it then flew off into the trees!

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 [...]

Fun Projects at Snow Hill Middle

Teacher Ms. Courtney and Social Worker Ms. Taylor have been working with our students on a project, using balloons, tissue paper, and mod podge to create colored light covers. Many of the students in the classroom have sensory sensitivities, and we are hopeful that the dimmer lighting will be helpful in creating a more welcoming environment. We also had a celebration for student Dustin Bratten's 50th day on Blue level in our behavior management system. Go Dustin! 😊
