Horizons Field Trips

The West Jasper Horizons students recently applied their studies in the field as they traveled to Alabama and Louisiana. Intellectually gifted students in 5th and 6th grades enjoyed spelunking in the damp, dark DeSoto Caverns in Childersburg, Alabama. Students, teachers, and parents took home various gemstones found as they panned for gems. The group was also challenged to a quest as they searched for towers in a fenced maze. Horizons students walked into the caverns and witnessed nature’s beauty as they identified stalagtites, stalagmites, and other speleothems. They learned about Hernando DeSoto’s discovery of the cavern and how Confederate soldiers used the cavern for mining gun powder. Trevor Parker said, “Seeing everything we’ve learned about made it so exciting!” 

Gifted students in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades traveled to Folsum, Louisiana to experience animals in their natural habitat through a safari at the Global Wildlife Center. Students rode on a wagon through the African-like grasslands while feeding fallow deer, water bucks, zebras, giraffes, rhea birds, and other species of wildlife. During the safari, students learned about feeding habits, interactions, behaviors, and adaptations in each species’ natural habitat. The students loved the close interaction with the animals and developed an appreciation for conservation of our world’s wildlife.

Blood Drive
 

 

Blood Drive
 

There was a lot of hesitation and nervousness in the Allied Health classroom at Stringer High School on the morning of Wednesday, October 1st  as several students stepped up for the first time to give the gift of life. The Stringer Student Council hosted its annual blood drive in conjunction with United Blood Services. Senior, Quade Clark and Junior, Elizabeth Barden assisted in the coordination of the event and registered blood donors for the project. High school advisor, Sonya Ready said the group enjoys hosting the blood drive each year and recognizes the importance of giving back to the community. The group’s goal for the day was 43 units of blood. United Blood Services School Coordinator, Kim Brown reported that the school broke a record with their fall blood drive as students, teachers, and community members donated 62 units of blood. Allied Health instructor, Megan Welborn held the drive in her classroom which allowed her students to experience some of their curriculum in action. Stringer High School will host another blood drive on Thursday, February 12th at the Stringer High School campus. If you would like to donate blood, you can sign up online at www.bloodhero.com and use the sponsor code stringerhigh with no spaces or you can call the school at 601-649-5566 to schedule an appointment. Thank you.
