7th Grade Life Science Conducts Rat Study
by Jack Hild
Seventh grade Life Science is currently experimenting with what type of diet help rats gain weight fastest. áThe rats all started on a dog food diet to give us a base line for weight gain. áWe are using five different diets which consist of grains, meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables, and junk food. áThe rats are weighed three times a week and weight gain is graphed. áWe feed the rats the same diet for about two weeks and then change them to another diet to see how weight gain is affected. áWhen we conclude the experiment we will talk about how we can apply these results to our lives. áHopefully by looking at how the rats are affected they will see what can happen to them. áIt is a fun experiment and the students learn how to collect data and what problems experiment can have as we conduct them in the lab.

Mrs. Kruse's Study Skills Class Earns Fishing Trip
by Tasha Kruse
Our 7th-8th grade study skills fishing trip was a success! Students who earned a C or better in all classes for 3rd quarter were able to bring their fishing pole to school and skip out on class! Students also enjoyed ápizza and pop at the park. This was an eventful day and our study skills students are encouraged to earn this trip for 4th quarter as well! We love to celebrate student success!
