The Calico Rock School District will be out for Christmas Break from December 25-January 5.
S.T.E.M. Classroom activities (SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY ENGINEERING AND MATH)
PLTW empowers millions of students across the U.S. to unlock their potential by developing the in-demand, real-world knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in life beyond the classroom.
Our students had an amazing time exploring the brain in our Project Lead The Way Medical Detectives class! They have spent the semester learning how to take vitals, exploring different medical cases, and discovering what ails various patients. Now that they have explored the different parts of the brain and become familiar with it, the next step will be exploring what could cause it to be sick!
In the following pictures you see a sheep's brain. They had to label the parts of the brain.
The Elementary Christmas Program will be on Monday, December 18 @ 6:00.
In memory of Mr. Mark Green,
Mark Green was a long time resident of Big Flat, Arkansas but his second home was in Calico Rock. He worked for the Calico Rock School District from 1986 until his retirement in 2014.
Mr. Green was a teacher, librarian, and confidant to the students he served. He made an impact on every student who knew him and was inducted into the Calico Rock Hall of Honor in October of this year. His passing has left his family and friends to mourn but with fond memories as well.
