How are they going?
Well, read on to find out!
Members of the TSA/VEX robotics team met in the robotics lab to work on their new competition robot and prepare for the state competition in April. The new robot will use the latest VEX processor and motor configurations, and will replace the original competition robot built last year. Photos show the original robot on our new competition field that we just completed last week. Sonith, Elijah, and Jean Paul are shown building the frame for the new robot. Jensen and Shunterius built the field components while Jennifer finished installing the field’s floor tiles. The team is scheduled to compete at the TSA state conference in Chattanooga April 1-4.
Rock and Roll High School
East High students went to Cloud901 to learn about the recording studio and the recording studio process. We have 2 more sessions, March 30 and May 11 (each will be 2 hour sessions) to turn these tidbits into a real East High song. Stay tuned 'til next time!
The International Club
The students talked about US aid to poor countries and what impact does it do to the population and their economy. Aid related to stability, to fighting a pandemic disease, to fighting terrorism, to power, etc...do these aids reach their specific targets or politicians just play a game of quid-pro-quo? This was our daily topic as we discussed to find the myth or the reality behind “Aid.”
Senior Brunch and Superlatives
The seniors enjoyed brunch prepared by Ms. Covington's Culinary Arts Students. Mr. Malone did an amazing job celebrating our seniors!
The Great Debaters
We prepared for our final debate which will be on February 29th at White Station from 8:30am-5:00pm. Students researched outside evidence and compiled it into a shared GoogleDoc.
The Carpentry Club
Students made indoor planter boxes for their project this month. Matthew Bearden helped everyone get their wood pieces together and we focused on building a proper box with no screws showing. Some of the students went a little overboard with the wood glue, but all in all, everyone now has a beginning for their own personal zen garden.
Delta State University
The Destress Coloring Club
Members of Destress Coloring Club met in room 208. Students were given designs to color, but some students chose to work on projects they were completing on their own. Students talked and relaxed throughout the process, but in the end, everyone had a good time and shed their worries for a little while together.
The Mustangs met their goal of $500 for the American Heart Association!
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. One person dies every 37 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease. Cardiac events may be prevented with education and changes in lifestyle Eat healthy meals, don’t smoke, keep your Body Mass Index (BMI), your blood sugar, and blood pressure in a normal range. The Mustangs have joined the movement to help raise awareness for American Heart Month. We are in red and donating today to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease which we hope will be instrumental in saving lives. When Mustangs come together, there’s nothing we can’t do. Today we ignited a wave of red! We statute every Mustang that played a vital part to eradicate cardiovascular diseases. We couldn’t get a picture of everyone in red but we would like to share a few Go Red photos.
The Language Learning Garden Club
The Language Learning Garden Club made plans for what would be planted in the Language Learning Garden and the Pollinator gardens on campus this Spring. The Club members also worked on signage that will be used in the gardens to help inform and educate about their purpose!
