Elementary Character Education Assembly

November was all about good citizenship.

Friday, November 17, 2017, the PC elementary gym was full of slightly squirmy students and some very proud parents as the qualities of academic achievement, good behavior and good character were recognized.  November's focus was on good citizenship and this quality was recognized in the nomination of Coach Matt Klingner as the community winner of that honor. High school senior Amy M. was also honored for that character trait.

Learning and Overcoming Fears

Every month, a different science class gets the opportunity to feed the classroom pet snake, Neguina, a ball python, and this month, it was the students in chemistry class who got the opportunity to see the cycle of life in action. The class has been studying about the frequencies that different wavelengths of light produce and how snakes locate their prey using the prey's infrared signature that snakes can "see" using special sensory organs on their faces. While watching the feeding, some students ventured to test their courage by holding the tarantula, Rosie...all in the name of science, of course! It was a rare opportunity for her to be out and while few students tried to handle her, interestingly, tarantulas make surprisingly gentle pets. Perhaps next month, another class will show the same nerves of steel . . .

Hello Human Body!

Hello everyone.  As we have made the turn and are on the downhill side of the 2nd quarter, both 8th and 6th grade health classes are starting their big projects for the year.  The following paragraphs give a little insight into what each grade is doing. 8th Grade Health - The 8th grade students recently started their body systems project.  Along with their group, the students will make a Google slides presentation that goes over certain body systems.  The systems are the endocrine, nervous, skeletal, muscular, circulatory, digestive, urinary, and respiratory systems.  They will then present these when they come back from Thanksgiving break and then will end the quarter by going over nutrition and how they plays a role in the human body as well. 6th Grade Health - The 6th grade is following right . . .
