A new month has begun and that means that we have new Math Munchers. Here is the first challenge. It might be a bit tricky. Can you figure it out?

 

Discovering DNA

Students in biology class have been learning about genetics and DNA recently. In order to help her students understand the concepts like the double helix structure and base pairing, Mrs. Roberts has them building model DNA. They can choose the sequence, but the model is structured so that the chemicals can only be paired correctly. This is a great hands-on learning activity and just one example of the awesome things being done at our school on a regular basis.

Guys and Dolls finishes its successful run

The entire cast of Guys and Dolls

For a the past few months here at SaJHS our stage has been a busy scene as students rehersed their roles in the classic Guys and Dolls. Saturday, however, brought an end to afterschool rehersals as the cast of Guys and Dolls gave their last performance to a nearly packed auditorium. Here is what Mrs. Ashworth had to say about her experience:

"I've loved every play & cast that we have performed, here at Salem jr High, ever since my reign began. But this year's play is probably my fave. The cast and crew are like one big family! They take care of each other. Guys and Dolls had a fun story, memorable songs, and 4 amazing performances.  But what really is going to stick with the creators of this performance was the friendship and experience that the students and directors gained from working on this show. My students have heard me say this but its still true, I can't do any of this alone; I need my backstage crew making sure that props and set pieces are where they should be when the curtains open; I need my tech booth on top of cues so that the audience can see and hear; and I need my fabulous actors lines or no lines to help tell this story. When you think about it I really don't do that much, It's all of the students working together with just a little bit of guidance from me. Thank you Cast, Crew, & Parents!"
