MIDDLE SCHOOL TROUT PROJECT
Most Sacred Heart Middle School recently completed its third year of Trout Unlimited’s “Trout in the Classroom” program. This year was our most successful year yet. The program begins in September with the arrival of some 300-500 trout eggs. Within the next three weeks, the eggs begin to hatch and the trout grow and develop in the cold water tank for the next 8 months. The middle school students of Most Sacred Heart help in the maintenance of the tank and get to watch them grow before their eyes. This year we released 98 young trout at Westover Farms in Steelville, MO. These trout range in size from an inch and a half to almost 4 inches and will continue their development in the spring-fed waters until they are able to enter into the main river system.
2017-2018 New Science Program
During the 2017-2018 School Year, MSHS Grades K-8 will be piloting the MySci science program. Developed by Washington University in St. Louis in partnership with the Missouri Botanical Garden, the Saint Louis Zoo, and the Saint Louis Science Center, MySci is dedicated to instilling a love for science in students.
With its kit-based innovative instructional materials, teachers can improve student learning through hands-on, investigative resources and support. The lessons and activities are integrated across subject areas and are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards. Each unit emphasizes STEM learning through scientific and engineering practices, focuses on a core disciplinary idea appropriate for the grade level, and encourages students to make connections about the crosscutting concepts that unify the study of science and engineering.
We are excited to pilot this program and look forward to implementing it next school year!
Reminder: Archery Club will be meeting through out the summer starting on Wednesday May 24th 6pm – 7pm in the Most Sacred Heart Gym. We will be meeting every other Wednesday until school starts next fall 2017.
