HS BREAKING NEWS
Earth Day 2020 Has Gone Virtual
April 22, 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Amid the recent COVID-19 global pandemic, Earth Day 2020 went virtual among our students. They kept the inspiration by celebrating the First Digital Earth Day. They wrote down their Earth Day commitments, reasons, and plan of actions about how to take care of the earth. Some watched a general public film that describes environmental issues like climate change, pollution, wildlife conservation, and more and then wrote a short note of how this impacted their understanding of ecological practices. Others made little reminders to help their families change habits at home. They drew some signs on the light switches, faucets, televisions, and refrigerators. Other exciting things were that students found vegetables in their refrigerators or seeds from the local store to start their miniature garden. Some used eggshells as a pot. Others began growing plants in suspended water. Some students reused a leftover ingredient found in their fridge to make their next mouthwatering meal. To relieve stress during the COVID 19 Community Enhance Quarantine, students also showed examples of stress-relieving activities they performed at home on Earth Day. They explained how these could impact their health and the environment.

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Mrs. Cunning's AP US History and AP Government Class Updates
WE DID IT! AP Exams for US Government and Politics and United States History are over. I only heard from two students stating that they had an issue with their exam and have to take the June exam. If you or your child did not notify me already, please do so now so that I can help them prepare for the exam and feel confident in their responses. For the remainder of the school year, we will be finishing up the remaining lessons for these courses. The mandatory work will post each morning at 8am and anything that is in purple or blue will be due that night by 11:59pm. Please make sure that you are keeping up with the assignments and let me know if you have any questions. For those who have under a 60%, it is important to make sure these assignments are completed and submitted on time in order to raise your grade and receive a P for the 4th Quarter. I personally want to thank all of the students, and parents, who have kept up with their studies over the past two months. I know that taking an AP course online and having the format being switched on us in April was not something that we anticipated, but I believe everyone did their best to continue with the same cadence we had while we were in the building.

DNA Replication | Project Based Model Approach
The outbreak of COVID-19 has changed everything about the way our students do projects in science, but the thought that they can analyze and successfully evaluate the science concept is amazingly phenomenal. Biology students created their own models and justified how DNA replicates. Their access to pieces of information was very crucial; however, they were unstoppable and never ceased discovering. Thank you for all the wonderful parents that have been very supportive.

Ms. Coholic's Science Classes
Hi, Everybody! I have been uploading assignments on Monday and Tuesday to allow more time for those students who are taking AP exams. Everyone is able to see their work for the week, which is due Friday at 10:00 am, and plan their schedules as they see fit. Physics is continuing with the Electricity Unit. There is a simple 'engineering' problem as the Challenge Problem this week. Feel free to work with a partner. BioGeoChem will dive a bit deeper this week into how viruses get into cells and circulate undetected. As always, email me with your questions or ask during our online classes. :) Have a great week!

On behalf of the English Department, I'd like to extend congratulations and best wishes to the Class of 2020!

We are so excited to see what you accomplish next, and please do not be strangers! Here is a Padlet that the Drama students worked on this week, with well-wishes for the seniors and advice for the underclassmen: https://padlet.com/MrHommel/vil9fzib43sgd8w1

Seniors' Messages To Their Younger Peers
SENIORS' MESSAGES TO THEIR YOUNGER PEERS Siri Dubois "Freshmen, you are beginning one of the greatest years of your lives, enjoy it while you can! Sophomores, start finding out what your interests are and start thinking about some colleges you might want to attend. Juniors, its crunch time! This year is a really hard one. Start studying little by little for the SAT and ACT. They are very important things that colleges look at." Jonathan Hawkins "One thing I recommend that you could do is to learn new skills. Or work on things you know you need to improve." Terrell Nash "If I were to give an advice, I would most definitely say don’t procrastinate, don’t stress yourself but make leaps and challenges. Be bold and get involved because things can start off as a moment but memories last forever." Christopher Reynolds "To the Freshmen - One thing that you need to do is find those friends that will hold you down for the rest of your life To the Sophomores - This year you start developing your own identity. But remember to always be yourself To the Juniors - Make wise choices but remember to have fun. This is your last year before you have to worry about your future and stress for 10 months." Kayla Henderson "Whatever the case may be, just keep a positive mindset about everything you do and I promise you, you’ll get through it like I did." Oge Odidika "Stay focused in school. Try your best in all assignments and to maintain good grades. Sometimes things may get hard or you may lose motivation but KEEP GOING!" Nia Rankin "Involve yourself in many activities like sports, yearbook, robotics etc. Being in activities are fun and chances to bond with others. It is always great to take classes that challenge you like honors and AP classes." Hanna Tchokote "The best advice that I have for you all is just staying focused, surrounding yourselves with people that want nothing but the best for you which includes pushing you to be great." Jordan Bocage "I wanna say that I wish you all the very best and I want y’all to keep striving to being the best and hardworking individuals you are. When the times get harder and rough keep pushing forward at being the best student you can be and don’t allow nothing or no one to stand in the way of your success."
