7th graders in Mr. Buhler's class continue their exploration of beekeeping and the bee's role in our environment. Mr. Buhler and his classes have been visiting the hive and monitoring its change and growth. In this second video video, Mr. B and his students visit the hive and check on the bees. This hive has some additional straps that connect it to a pallet to prevent the local black bears from disrupting it.
We wrapped up the year with a wonderful Best Thursday celebration. Kudos, games, music and lots of laughs as we honored our departing teachers, staff and the class of 2013. Thanks to our student council members for organizing and leading our Best Thursdays throughout the entire year. Click on the image to view the entire gallery.
