Annual Pops Concert

On February 7th our high school school band, jazz band, choir, and show choir all performed in the annual Pops Concert.
The high school band got a standing ovation after performing all the Star Wars songs with a video that correlated with the music. They also performed a medley of the songs from Glee, called Best of Glee, and a march called Big Four.
The jazz band performed three songs, the first a funky song called Indigo Hippo. The second was a smooth jazz song called Black Coffee, and the third and final song was a Bruno Mars piece called Runaway Baby. The choir sang, Fight Song and White Winter Hymnal. The show choir sang Respect and Jar of Hearts. The quartet sang Away From the Roll of the Sea.
The concert was great and it was enjoyed by all who attended!

Daylight Savings Time 2016

The time is about to spring forward. Daylight savings is on Sunday, March 13, 2016. Beginning at 2:00 A.M. the time will be set ahead an hour. The purpose is making better use of daylight and conserving energy. This means that the sunrise and sunset are one hour later than the day before. It was first used in 1908 in Thunder Bay, Canada. However, in the United States, it used to be called “Fast Time”. It was first introduced in 1918 when President Woodrow Wilson signed it into law to support the war effort during World War I. The vision was started by Robert Garland, a Pittsburgh industrialist, who had thought of the idea in the United Kingdom. Today he is often called the “Father of Daylight Saving”. Only seven months later the seasonal time change was canceled. Some cities, including Pittsburgh, Boston, and New York, continued to use it until President Franklin D. Roosevelt began year-round daylight saving time in the United States in 1942. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead!

Child and Parenting Project

It’s that time of year again for students to take home a lifelike baby and take care of it as if it was their own. Between January 25th to March 10th students in Mrs. Kroll’s Child and Parenting class will be leaving the school with a baby. Students take the baby for one night, taking the baby home with them when they leave school and returning the baby the next morning before school starts. Students will have to change diapers, feed, burp, and rock the baby which is then recorded for the student’s grade. What is the purpose of the baby simulation? “The purpose to is help teens realize that their choice of sexual activity, at a young age, may have lifelong consequences.  One, of many, is becoming pregnant and having a baby.  Most/all pregnancies, teens and adults, will change your life - physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually. Hopefully, even after just one night with the baby simulator, teens will think twice about their choices,” says teacher Terri Kroll.
The class also took a field trip on February 22nd to visit St. Mary’s Hospital’s OB/Childbirth Center, the YMCA of the Northwoods Children’s Learning Center, and Walmart Super Center. On the field trip, students got to see the different types of hospital rooms that babies are born in. Students also went to a daycare to see the type of environment parents leave their child in when they’re at work and how much it costs to have a child cared for. What were students to do at Walmart Super Center?  Budgeting for a baby is an extremely important part of having a baby.  Students were given a list of baby supplies (newborn) that they had to find in Wal-Mart and then record the price.  Also, they were asked to identify if these items were “needs” or “wants” and concluded with a summary of what they learned.  
Hopefully, students gained a better understanding of just how much babies and their necessary supplies cost - again to help them think twice about having one before they are financially ready, says Terri Kroll. Overall, students had an adventurous time caring for a baby and learning about childbirth, daycare, and expenses.
