"Vacuum Packing Students in CHS???" ...April Fools!
Badres Andres experiences atmospheric pressure inside a trash bag. Badres was one of 10 chemistry students that experienced the effects of "vacuum packing". We are accustom to the atmospheric pressure in our everyday life but this "demo" allows the students to feel what atmospheric pressure is all about!! Don't be shocked if your 2nd semester chemistry students wants to "vacuum pack" his/her siblings or parents.

On Tuesday, March 17th CHS a group of 30 10th - 12th graders went on a three campus tour of WNCC's career and technical campus offerings. We started the day in Alliance at the WNCC Power and Line Campus. We learned that power and linemen not only make an amazing salary, but are going to be in high demand in the job market for the next 10 years due to retirements in the fields.

In Mr. Bradley’s third block anatomy and physiology class, we have been learning about the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system. Along with the blood typing lab, we dissected a pig heart. We have been reading and listening to lectures about how the heart works, the different valves and vessels, the circulation but there’s no better way to learn then to dissect something and see it for yourself.

(Submitted by CHS Junior, Mikaela Hastings)Mr. Bradley's third block anatomy and physiology class has been learning the ends and outs of the body from day one in class. From body growth on a cellular level, to the function of whole organ systems and how they work in the body, the anatomy class has been immersed in material about the human body in hopes to obtain knowledge that will carry them through their college careers, and the rest of their lives.
