Mr. Ted Zawacki’s Government/Economics class held their second debate of the semester on the argument: “Partial Birth Abortion Should be Illegal”. The debaters prepared detailed arguments and rebuttals that were well thought out and articulated. A comprehensive understanding of Roe vs. Wade resulted and was the cornerstone of the debate.
The students are shown using the textbook’s online review to prepare for their chapter test. The students complete the self-check quizzes and chapter test online. The website provides hints to the students as they are working on each problem. It also provides the correct answers once they complete each quiz in order for them to check their work. I am looking forward to success on the TEST!
Mrs. Sklarin’s geometry class enjoyed a break form arithmetic today as they created tessellations. Tessellations are patterns made from shapes that cover the entire surface without gaps or overlaps. The students used congruence transformations to move their shapes around to cover the surface of a page. Students used translations with their crazy squares and rotations with their crazy triangles. The pattern block station was the biggest hit with the students. Many wonderful and colorful shapes were created. We hope you enjoy our photo gallery of our Tessellation Day.

Like our Founding Fathers, students in Ms. Hobson’s afternoon U.S. Government class worked in groups to create new governments. This activity was a conclusion to their lessons on how governments are formed, types of governments, and the origins of the U.S. Government.
The Third year Spanish class is avidly studying the current migration of the Monarch Butterfly from our island of Hilton Head to Michoacan, Mexico, where over 250 million will reside for the winter. Our students have recently recorded sightings of the Monarch in our community and are presenting their findings to the class in their Spanish power point projects. We are learning a great deal in Spanish about our fragile ecosystem!
