Unveiling of the Hawk

Thanks to the generosity of the Classes of 2017 and 2018, we are proud to unveil a cast bronze sculpture of our mascot, the hawk. We were delighted that some alumni parents were able to join in the event. There was much cheering from the students body and now we can look forward to a competition to name the Hawk. If you happen to be near the Reiber Center, please stop and admire the lovely sculpture.

Newton's Laws

Eighth grade students participated in a cross-curriculum project. In Health, as part of a study on marriage relationships, they each had to be responsible for caring and protecting a baby (a hard-boiled egg). Each baby had to be secured safely and securely in a car seat. The students put a great deal of thought in creating the car seat. In the second part of the project, Mr. Brown required the students to test the safety features of the car seat under stressful landing and accident conditions. The car seats were dropped from the roof (thank you, Mr. Reger) and the information on time of fall, velocity, mass and weight, force of impact, potential and kinetic energy and momentum had to be calculated. In the conclusion of the lab report, the students had to explain how Newton's three laws related to this egg drop project. VIEW VIMEO HERE.
