Manual Prep Academy rewarded its top student, the only one out of 51 to receive all As and Bs and have no referrals or absences to go with it. Christian Little is a remarkable student and one we wish we could replicate over and over. Christian was named principal for the day at Manual. She did walk throughs of math classrooms with Mrs. Young, Mr. Vaughn, and Mrs. Gobeyn as well as handing out Ram-bucks for some positive behavior she saw from students. She made a positive phone call home about herself and had her brother warned about disrespecting siblings. To wrap up the day, Christian made an administrative decision to give all middle school students recess for a few minutes at the end of the day.
Manual Prep Academy took a day to refresh themselves on behavior expectations and social skills. Their morning started with being assigned to seats in the cafeteria with other students with whom they usually do not communicate. The students started discovering some unique things they had in common. One group had two members that could both text with their toes! Later, tables were handed some different quotes based around the ideas of humility and perseverance and how they related to school. Students once again modeled hallway behavior throughout all of their transitions during the day.
Mrs. Daly's AP Biology students worked very hard the past few weeks. They took a concept, transpiration, and chose how they would test the rate of transpiration in plants. The students wrote their own experiments, procedures, and testing. They performed the experiments over a week long period and gather valuable data. They then had to evaluate their data and analyze whether or not their hypotheses had been met. The students then created college level posters to disseminate their information to others. The class worked very hard and deserve recognition for their outstanding commitment to their education.
