AP Chemistry

Students completed 3 different titrations over this last week before spring break. Today they titrated Vinegar so that they could calculate the concentration of Acetic Acid in this common household chemical. An everyday form of titration, that is typically seen outside of a lab, is used when tested the pH of a swimming pool.

Varsity Baseball

Twenty-two members of the Varsity Baseball team traveled to Walt Disney World during Spring break last week. The boys played daily games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and were able to enjoy downtime at each of the parks. This was a wonderful experience for our team and we are proud of their efforts while there.
