Four teachers were pleasantly surprised Friday when representatives of the Talladega City School Foundation presented them with grants. A high-powered camera, Quiz Bowl software, and lab coats will be purchased using the grant money. We are thrilled these teachers took the time to complete the grant applications, and we are extremely thankful to the Talladega City Schools Foundation for their support!

Donterrio S. led a great math lesson in Mrs. Wood's class as he reviewed mean, median and mode with his fellow 7th grade math classmates. Mrs. Wood said, "I allow students to lead the review skills because sometimes students respond better to peer teaching."

Mrs. Foy's classes enjoyed several Fun Friday activities last Friday. In one experiment, balls were bounced to determine the various substances they contained. In a second activity, artificial snow was created. Thirdly, fortune telling fish reacted with the moisture in the students' hands to "predict" future events. Finally, as pictured below, solar tubes were filled with cold air, tied, then the air was heated. This caused the tubes to float midair. Fun Fridays allow students an opportunity to participate in hands-on activities and enjoy a variation of their schedule by spending time in the lab or outside.
