After an initial introduction to microscope usage Mrs. Bass’ science students spent the class period making observations with microscopes, of various plant and animal cells. Students were able to distinguish the basic differences between these cells and documented their sightings to their science journal. These “hands on” activities allowed for the freedom to choose from a number of cells and experiment with the various optical adjustments found on the microscope.

Mrs. Sklarin’s students participated in a game of “GeoCaching” or “Alge2Caching ” from www.mathbits.com. It is a web based game where the students search the internet to find 10 web pages. They have to answer various math problems on each page in order to find the next page. The first students to find all 10 boxes recieved a certificate. Congratulations to the winners: Derrick and Sean tied in block 2; Daniel won in block 4; and Phyllis won in block 5.
When studying memory earlier this quarter, the psychology class spent an afternoon at Memory Matters. Memory Matters is a very special place on Hilton Head Island that offers a welcoming atmosphere for those suffering memory loss, while also providing a respite for caregivers. The participants interact socially in a meaningful way through a variety of activities. Our students were able to participate in some of these activities, including several competitive games of Bingo and a fun “acting” and movement exercise. The students also interacted on an individual, one-on-one basis with the participants during our visit. This was a real-life learning experience that was highly valued by each student in the class.
The AP Literature & Composition students just completed presenting their independent novels to the class. After completing the reading and researching the author and the critical analysis, each student “taught” his/her novel to the class in a 45-minute presentation. These presentations not only included biographical author information and literary analysis, but creative elements as well. The creative elements ranged from servings of rye bread and duck, biscuits, and apple pie to original artwork, related music, lemonade, and purple flowers! In addition, each student wrote an original poem that was representative of his/her novel.
Our students are truly wonderful!
