Bio Club Studies Avian Anatomy
The mission of the CHS Biology Club is to promote interest in biology and to provide students with out of class opportunities to further their understanding of the topic through activities such as dissection. Club sponsors are Maya Schultz and Sarah Keziah. Last week the club members participated in a dissecting activity using pigeons.

Apparel Students Support Little Dresses for Africa
Students in Ms. Leah Ross’s Apparel I classes took their curriculum to the next level by participating in Little Dresses for Africa. Little Dresses for Africa is a non-profit organization that provides relief to the children of Africa through the donation of little sundresses sewn from pillowcases or simple patterns. In the case of Ms. Ross’s students, the challenge was to make two dresses from 2 yards of fabric with a total cost of under $10 for both. The Apparel I curriculum includes the basics of apparel design and construction so students were able to practice the skills they were learning for an authentic purpose.Full Story
