     In May, the Rogers Art department turned the 800’s wing into a gallery space to showcase all student artwork. Upper level art students wrote artists statements and created a retrospective display of their work.

    Guess Who's Coming to Dinner           

    Mr. Ferris' AP European History Classes completed their "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" projects with meals in the Colonial Dining Room. Students were to organize a dinner party for eight historical personages from the course. They had to give their reasoning for inviting each guest, organize and explain the seating arrangements and provide a partial transcript of the conversation. To complete the assignment, they had to portray one of their characters at our dinner party . Extra credit was given for dressing in costume.

     Pig Dissections

    Ms. Copeley's Physiology class had a busy week of dissecting pigs to observe their internal anatomy. Using pigs as models, the students were able to get a better understanding of the respiratory, digestive, reproductive and cardiovascular systems. They even measured the length of the small intestines!
