The high school Academies have been busy and creative and Coordinator Candi Agee filled board members in on what they've been up to in a PowerPoint presentation.
Among a long list of activities spanning various academic interests, the chemistry and automotives group saw an airbag deployment demonstration, the human services academy built catapults, the foreign language group invited the public to learn about Christmas around the world, the physical sciences and automotives group learned about 4-wheelers, and the wellness group put together an anti-drug public service announcement viewed by the school.
The chemistry and early childhood education academy made their own "slime" and at Agriculture Day, students learned about tractors and farm animals."These are only the tip of the iceberg," Agee
said."There are so many more activities we'll be doing."
Academy projects will be on display for the public at a Project Fair March 15 at the high school."We want to invite everyone because the students are doing really great things," Agee
