Mrs. Shumway, the school counselor, is making rounds this week to all the sixth grade classes. She is teaching the students what many feel is a tricky thing to figure out in junior high...how to open a locker! Students had the opportunity to practice on several different locks with different lock combinations to learn how it works.
On Tuesday, May 8th, Mrs. Bair's math students learned about the stock market.
