CJHS Classroom Spotlight: 5/17: 101 Dalmatians Reading/Movie Exercise Activity Finished! Students in Adaptive P.E. Participated in a 101 Dalmatians Exercise Activity over the months April-May. The APE class first read the 101 Dalmatians book and performed physical exercises when they heard specific characters names for example, “Pongo” = 1 sit-up. After completing the book, during the past three Maroon Days students participated in the 101 Dalmatians activity along with the animated movie. The class enjoyed popcorn last Thursday and finished successfully today. The final exercise they performed was shoulder taps when they heard the word “Dalmatians.” Feel free to try the activity at home and do not forget, safety first.
Good Luck CJHS Wrestlers in Mt. Zion tonight at 6 pm. #MaroonPride

Classroom Spotlight: Mr. McMath’s 8th grade students traveled to Woodlawn Cemetery to conduct preliminary research for their Good Cemeterian Project. Students are researching a Civil War Veteran and creating a project based on their life. Students noted the condition of the gravestones, the information provided on them and used a GPS to mark the location of each of their graves. Students will travel back to the cemetery next week to clean the gravestones. #MaroonPride

Students will use the receivers to mark the location of Civil War graves at Woodlawn Cemetery and create an online map. The project allows the information on the stones to be preserved and accessible online. The receivers were purchased with a grant from the Clinton Community Educational Foundation.
