It’s all about CHEMISTRY at GHS! Chemistry students filled out a "dating profile" about their assigned element, and then began their search for love! They "speed dated" to see if they would make bonds with other lonely elements, and then practiced writing the chemical formula and name for each match. Mrs. Russell, we ❤️ your passion for your content and students!
We will start our required annual BMI and scoliosis screenings tomorrow at CMS and GHS. We will be working on these through February. BMI screenings will be done in grade 6, 8, and 10. Scoliosis screenings will be done on 6th grade girls and all of the 8th grade. If you want your student to be exempt from these screenings, please call the nurse's office at their school.
