Bio 100 students were asked to dissect a fetal pig for their midterm exam. They labeled organs and blood vessels and then compared the anatomy of the pig to that of a human. An example of a comparison might be the number of lobes of a human liver compared to that of the fetal pig.
Teachers at KMHS a spent the afternoon learning more about ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences). We learned that one in four students have 4 or more barriers to participating or attending to their own education. This training helps staff understand some of these barriers and what it may look like in students. Thanks to the KMHS Leadership Team who put on the training today. Thanks to Penny and Kathy who fed everyone homemade soups and chowder along with sandwiches. Thanks to Mrs. Rush who keeps us pointed in a healthy direction. Each day we spend together talking, learning and planning benefits your students and we appreciate this time.

High school drama class enjoyed time in the auditorium today as they acted out improv creativity. This was a comedy improv titled Hitchhiker. Students were seated in rows like on a bus. One student acted like a hitchhiker and put their thumb out for a ride. The hitchhiker was the the strong character and each student took a turn. There were lots of laughter and colorful dialogue.
