It provides creative opportunities for students and teaches them real life skills as well as principles of design. Students have the opportunity to take their arrangements home for the cost of the flowers or leave them for teacher purchase.

It is recommended that ALL SENIORS and their families fill this out, even if they have not yet made a decision about their future plans. Families will need to bring their 2016 tax documents (including the students if they filed) as well as the student's computer (so we have access to the internet).
This semester Ms. Cooper's BSAA class has been studying a chick embryology unit. As of today we have 25 hatched chicks which is about a 75% success rate. They were in the incubator for 21 days before they hatched. All of these eggs must have been fertilized by a rooster in order to develop into a chick (the eggs you purchase from the grocery store will not develop into chicks). As the chicks grow up, they will develop feathers and the BSAA class will be studying animal behavior by observing their pecking order.
