Intermediate School News for September 2-8, 2013


Eighth graders in Mrs. Hinson’s English classes were challenged to capture the world through the eyes of Jonas, whom they read about in THE GIVER. Using X-Ray graphics in PHOTO BOOTH on their iPads, students took snapshots to reveal the true essence of common objects from a black and white outlook. Congratulations to the Perspective Photo Project top choices, which were voted on by the students!

Top Choices:  Matthew Denny, Peter Nguyen, and Mallory Saleh

Runners Up: Macy Truitt, Carlynn Holleman, and Robbie Yates



Mrs. Goad’s sixth grade students put their knowledge of autotrophs and heterotrophs to use as they explored cell types using microscopes.
