  • On Monday the Cross Country team faced off against their toughest opponents of the year... their teachers. A challenge was issued by the Cross Country team captain, Austin Schubert, to the coaches a few weeks ago, and on Monday the teams finally collided in an epic kickball match. Despite the cross country team's best efforts to trash talk, intimidate, and "get in the heads" of their opponents they fell to the teachers 28 - 6 in a very one sided match. Maybe this is why they are runners.... Despite their awful kickball skills Mr. Lynch is proud of the season they had and is looking forward to seeing how much better we can get as a team.
    P.S. The teachers are ready for a rematch when you are. Good luck.

    Feel Good Fact: Did you know? The act of smiling can make you happier. Still not in a great mood? Try smiling. One notable 2009 study presented at the British Psychological Society's annual conference found that even if a smile is forced, the brain still responds to the expression by releasing chemicals that improve your mood.

    Want to practice some Chill Skills? Come to B-109 during both lunches to calm down, feel good, and unwind.

Because atoms are so teeny tiny, it takes lots and lots and lots of atoms to make an amount that is easy for chemists to work with. 1 mole is equal to 6 x 10 to the 23rd which is a 6 with 23 zeros. That is a HUGE number. Much too big a number to comprehend. The science department wishes everyone a HAPPY MOLE DAY!!!

  • It's Feel Good Friday!
    Feel Good Fact: Did you know? The act of smiling can make you happier. Still not in a great mood? Try smiling. One notable 2009 study presented at the British Psychological Society's annual conference found that even if a smile is forced, the brain still responds to the expression by releasing chemicals that improve your mood.

    Want to practice some Chill Skills? Come to B-109 during both lunches to calm down, feel good, and unwind.

Because atoms are so teeny tiny, it takes lots and lots and lots of atoms to make an amount that is easy for chemists to work with. 1 mole is equal to 6 x 10 to the 23rd which is a 6 with 23 zeros. That is a HUGE number. Much too big a number to comprehend. The science department wishes everyone a HAPPY MOLE DAY!!!
