Mr. Simeon Brace, the new High School science instructor, has also planned an eventful year for his students.  The High School science department will have weekly labs in addition to projects such as creating a leaf collection, monitoring stream activity, creating a bug collection, dissecting fetal pigs and frogs, and the ever popular Mole Day, where the Chemistry class celebrates Avogadro’s number. Both the Middle School and High School science departments participate in the annual science fair.  Ms. Bailey and Mr. Brace are both excited about the potential for this year, and look forward to seeing the unique experiments their students will create.
