Special thanks to Coleen Regan for providing food as well as organizing the snack brigade!
Eighth Grade Student Visits
Journeys School eighth grade students visited or will visit the high school in two groups November 3 and 8. The visit provides the students an opportunity to experience a day in the life of a Journeys high school student. We look forward to hosting them! Lunch will be provided to the visiting 8th grade students and all high school students both days.
11/12 Biology Ecological Scientific Research
For the past two weeks 11th and 12th grade students have been working on independent research projects studying the ecology of Coyote Canyon. Broadly, students are collecting and analyzing data in order to compare the hillslopes in the canyon. Knowing that slope aspect is the driving force behind the differences in vegetation of the hillslopes, students have collected data soil moisture, plant species diversity, soil pH, soil texture/type, and various other variables. Continuing for the next two weeks, students will begin to process their data and synthesize their findings.
