Student Designs Science Lab Experiment

A few months ago, some boys were flipping bottles in Mrs. Waheed’s Science class. After telling them to stop, Mrs. Waheed offered the students an opportunity to flip bottles in class if they submitted a lab proposal. Jessica Bailey, an 8th grade student, worked tirelessly conducting personal research to single-handedly write a lab sheet for her peers to perform their experiment. Her research even included which water bottles would work best. Jessica brought in pre-marked bottles for the students to use, and on top of all that, she personally graded the lab reports against a rubric that she created. By all accounts, the lab was professionally designed and engaged all of the students. Way to go Jessica!

Chorus Excellent at Festival of Music

On May 19th, Mr. Rafuse took 38 members of the 7-8th grade Warrior Chorus to Carowinds for their Festival of Music competition. The students were able to enjoy the rides for four hours before they performed later in the afternoon. The Warrior Chorus received a rating of Excellent from a panel of three judges. According to Mr. Rafuse, “the students went wild after being presented with the Excellent rating. I cannot say enough how proud I am of these Warriors. Not only did they play hard, they showed up to the theater exhausted, but they had preserved their voices and still slayed it.” Mr. Rafuse would also like to thank the following for their help with this trip: Mr. Davontae Singleton (ELW), Dr. Hawkins (SVHS), Mr. Jason Bush, Mr. Paul Tyler, and Mrs. Angela Chestnut. Congratulations Warriors!
