Right before the Thanksgiving break, my classes studied "freezing point depression", the fact that substances dissolved/dissociated into water will lower the freezing point of the resulting solution. How did we do this? By making ice cream!!!! And it tastes sooooo good!! (btw, -10 degrees C for those of you who are curious!!)

At the high school, we celebrated Thanksgiving early with a nice meal and line dancing. "My" lunch group decided to dress up, and I'm still not sure why they assigned me _that_ shirt ;-) We hope everyone has a Happy (and safe) Thanksgiving!!

The first graders enjoyed their very own “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.” It’s not about what you eat, but who you are celebrating with during the holidays. 🦃 🍁 🍽

The High School students worked pretty hard today, and not at what they normally do during a school day....today was our Community Clean-Up! We raked leaves, deep cleaned the school, cleaned out storage rooms that had years of accumulated items, and raked leaves (yes, I said that twice...ask any student and you'll understand). What a great opportunity for our students to give back to the communities. Thanks so much for everyone's hard work and dedication; and as one student said, "aspire to greatness"...and they did!!

Colonel Bodenheimer visited Ms.Moore’s kindergarten class with lots of stories, military props and jokes for Veterans Day. The class presented the Colonel with a class created Veterans Day Book. The day ended with the class performing patriotic songs for the Colonel. We were all very excited and thankful.
