The 7th and 8th grade honors science students enjoyed a wonderful day on the river system in Pittsburgh.  The students morphed into scientists as they traveled Pittsburgh's famous three river analyzing living and nonliving indicators of water quality.  Results are correlated with industrial history, historical and current land use, and serve as a springboard for exploring issues of sustainability and green designs. 

Students work together to:

  • Identify point and non-point pollution sources,
  • Collect and classify live plankton and macro-invertebrates,
  • Test water for chemical and physical indicators of pollution,
  • Correlate form to function in identifying fish and birds,
  • Explore concepts of sustainability and green design,
  • Discover how they fit into the river ecosystem - no matter where they live.

The 7th and 8th grade science classes are going to have the opportunity to perform their very own science fair project in class with brine shrimp and microscopes.  It will be a simplified project compared to the Pittsburgh Science Fair projects but the intent to reach more students is key.  Mr. Ayers won a MAC Grant for $500.00 from Mc Donald's that will pay for the supplies for this opportunity to come to fruition.

For most of us, the holidays are a time for family and friends to get together to share a meal, a laugh or a gift. That’s not the case for many of  the men and woman who are serving our country in the military.  These brave men and women are thousands of miles away or separated from their  loved ones during the holiday season. The students and faculty at the Junior High are hoping to make that time a little easier,by sending post cards with warm holiday wishes and words of thanks and appreciation to the troops.  Mrs. Colorito and her students organized a Post card drive for the Troops during the lunch periods  on October 28th to the 30th.  As a result, more than 200 postcards were written and will be sent to various and random troops and military members around the world.  Thanks to all of those who participated and are making a difference  in the lives of those who keep our country safe.
