These AASD students brought immense pride to our district in Oglebay, West Virginia!
They qualified at the county level to attend the NATIONAL ACADEMIC GAMES!
Joshua Guenther 5th grade
Naomi Husted 6th grade
Micah Kwolek 6th grade
They are all State Street students who know how to 'think' and play these higher-level games of intense strategy.
Naomi competed in Linquishtik, Equations, and Current Events. She had to have her game face on to do her best in grammar, math problems, and the latest news from 2016!
Micah and Josh competed in Current Events and Presidents. They could probably tell you what color dresses the First Ladies wore at the Innaugaration!
These students are to be commended for making it this far and competing with 1,000 players from across the nation!
Only the top 15% qualify from the county to play at the national level!
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THESE STUDENTS WHO KNOW HOW TO 'PLAY' TO WIN!!!!!!
We are truly proud of your accomplishments!

Students at Highland celebrated Autism Awareness Month in April. Students spread awareness and acceptance by learning more about Autism through fun videos and facts. Each Highland student colored an Autism Awareness ribbon to add to our display.
This season in track & field, Isaac Elliott plans to win a WPIAL title in his sprinting event. In previous years, Elliott has unfortunately pulled his hamstring and been unable to compete. This year he has been doing very well so far with no injuries, so he hopes to be able to compete and qualify for states. Congratulations to him so far, and good luck for the rest of the season!

During our Chapter on Stars and Galaxies I gave the students an assignment to research a galaxy or nebula, find certain information and using cross curricular teaching with the help of Jamie Jo our JH art teacher. The students used chalk and pastels to draw a picture of their galaxy/nebula. Although all the kids did a great job I always like to have a competition (short mans syndrome) and offer a small prize for the best in each class. Here are the winners!
