Lab investigations include recording data, collecting data, interpreting data and proving hypothesis. Over 40% of the 8th grade Science curriculum involves lab safety, conducting labs and investigating.
Student council members Allison Mitchell and Eric Hill pose with the Christmas gifts PTJH Student Council purchased for the children at Hiway 80 Rescue Mission. The students went to Walmart with a list and a budget. In all, students were able to spend $500 on gifts and kitchen items for the women and children at the shelter. They even received a donation from a woman at Walmart who saw what the students were doing and wanted to help. This is one of our favorite projects. The student council sponsor, Mrs. Riggs, said, "The students look forward to helping their community and they feel good about having a direct, positive effect in the Pine Tree area."
