Biology students and their parents pose with Mrs. Roberts after collecting their plants

Biology students and their parents hiked the switch back in Woodland Hills to collect woody plants for their biological collection. It was a great hike. These are the brave souls that made it to the top! It was a great day!

Students will be pressing the plants in their collection and creating a binder that identifies each plant that they found during their hike. 

Ammon Wallace is recognized nationally for his science project

Congratulations to Ammon Wallace who was chosen from more than 6,000 students to be in Broadcom Masters' top 300 students for his science fair submission. Some of you will remember last year when we posted about Ammon's project that explored the possibility of extending the shelf-life of milk using blue light. We were impressed with Ammon's creative solution  and it turns out that so were the judges.

This is a huge win for Ammon who will recieve free year-long subscriptions to science magazines and several other prizes. If chosen, the next step for Ammon would be Washington D.C. where 30 finalists will compete for top recognition and a grand prize of $25,000.

Make sure to congratulate Ammon and recognize this great achievement. Ammon is a great example for all of us of what it means to be Spartan Strong.

Who can solve the first Math Muncher for August

Attributions: 

School has begun and so the math department has issued its first challenge to our students. The first three Math Muncher problems have been posted. For those who are new to our school, every month the math department posts three math problems on their bulletin board. Each problem is worth tickets to enter a drawing to win a gift card courtesy the math department.

Students who answer these problems correctly can pass them off with their math teacher and recieve tickets. They will then write their name on the ticket and take it to Mrs. Johnson's class to enter the drawing. They always pick a winner from each grade level. The first question is worth one ticket, the second is worth two, and the third, of course, is worth three tickets. If students answer all three correctly they can get six tickets entered into the drawing.

Here is the first math muncher. Can you solve it?

In 9th grade English students made "clickbait headlines" to describe an event from their summer. The point is to get people interested in the story by creating an exaggerated headline. Tomorrow students will interview each other and get the real story.

Change in 7th Grade Day

Attributions: 

With the feedback we have received about the eclipse starting when our Seventh Grade Day is ending, we have decided to move up Seventh Grade Day to 8:30 a.m. and end at 10:45 a.m. Buses in the  morning will now only be 30 minutes later than the normal school day and will leave the school by 11:00 a.m. We hope this helps alleviate the conflict between the two events.
