This week in 7th grade Science, our young scientists are beginning trimester 2 by switching gears from chemistry to electricity/magnetism. Students studied how magnets are created, how repulsion and attraction occurs, and learned how useful they are in various types of applications including roller coasters! Our young engineers completed a lab using iron filings to plot out and sketch the magnetic fields with their new partners…check out the results below!
Thank you, Board members, for your time and dedication

Grade 7 Science - End of Trimester 1 Wrap Up
Our final week of trimester 1 in 7th grade Science concluded with our young chemists learning about of acids and bases. We compared the various types of ph levels in our foods and products we use everyday. Students were able to use the test tubes and ph paper to check the acidity levels of some popular drinks, including the water at Highlands! We are safe and good to go, so drink up!
Check out the results from our final chemistry lab!
On Wednesday, 11/1, our 5th and 6th grade students participated in Abilities Day. Students were able to learn more about individuals with different learning styles and abilities. They were such a good audience and exemplified what it means to be a Hornet - so kind and respectful. Thank you to our partners at LADSE, SEASPAR, and NADS for coming out and creating engaging and accessible learning opportunities for our students. Also, a special thank you Mrs. Melissa Luetkehans for organizing such a wonderful day!
