I've been trying to keep up with the many reactions to the school tragedy in Parkland, Florida. The national response has created many discussions and possibly some changes in state and federal laws. As policy makers continue their discussions, schools have been dealing with increased threats of violence, often by students who claim to be 'joking'. I thought this article by the KSB Law Firm in Nebraska was worth sharing to address this topic. (KSB Blog)
National History Day is an educational program devoted to the learning of history.
Recently, students chose a topic related to the annual theme (“Conflict and Compromise in History”) and conducted extensive research using both primary and secondary sources.
After analyzing and drawing conclusions abouttheir topics’ significance in history, they presented their work in an original project. The district contest was held March 2, 2018 at Chadron State College.
The 3rd Quarter ends with a 1:30p dismissal next Wednesday, March 7, 2018.
Report cards will be prepared and sent home the week following spring break.
Parents: please remind your students to turn in any missing work before the end of the quarter.
There will be no school next Thursday and Friday (March 8 & 9) for Spring Break.

In biology, we did a plant anatomy lab. In this lab we used microscopes to look at slides of roots, stems
and leaves. On each slide, there was a monocot and a dicot version of the three parts we examined.
Through this lab we learned what to look for in order to determine if it was a dicot or monocot. In roots,
you can determine the difference between the shape of the xylem. In a dicot root, the xylem will form
the shape of a cross or an x all bunched together which can be portrayed below.
