Lagoon day is coming up

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Thu, 04/11/2019 - 13:46

Lagoon day is quickly approaching and it's time to remind everyone of the requirements they need to meet in order to be eligible. 

Lagoon day will be on Thursday, May 16. Students can start buying their tickets on April 29. The cost $50 which covers the cost of the buses plus entrance into the park. Students will be assigned to a bus as they sign up, so if they want to ride on the same bus as their friends, they need to buy their tickets together.

Students need to meet several requirements in order to be eligible to go to Lagoon. These requirements are for the whole school year and not just 4th term.

  • No D's or F's
  • No more than 2 TARDIES and NO SLUFFS
  • No U's or N's in citizenship

Students who don't meet these requirements can meet with their teachers to make up deficient grades and citizenship and attend tardy makeup in the morning before school with Mrs. Ward to make up tardies and sluffs.

Mrs. Roberts' biology class learned about DNA replication in a simulation that inolved all students in a hands-on activity.  Students had ropes and blocks that represented the 4 chemicals that make up DNA strands which they had to string on their ropes to create the proper DNA strand produced in their DNA replication. Students enjoyed getting out of their desks and interacting with their friends while they learned in a fun and engaging way.
