Bradley High School Principles of Engineering students spent time this past spring at the construction site for the New Memorial Middle School. This was part of their hydraulics curriculum. The superintendent from the construction management company, Elford Construction, met with the students and used an excavator to demonstrate its function. They were able to see the hydraulic systems that control and power the arm. The operator of the excavator also reviewed basic safety with the students and discussed counter weighting of the excavator to ensure it doesn’t tip over when lifting a heavy load.
Throughout the next school year students will be involved at every opportunity to see firsthand how this school is designed, built and outfitted for the opening of the 2018/19 school year.
Students from several elementary schools in the Focus program this year worked together to launch a high-altitude weather balloon to the edge of the stratosphere. They planned a scientific payload, used instruments to track and recover the craft, and analyzed the data at the end of the launch. Allowing students to work collaboratively on real world research projects prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.

This year the Washington fifth grade students worked on service based capstone projects. In Mrs. Jenkins classroom the students were passionate about helping the environment. As a grade, the students raised money from a penny drive to help fund their capstone projects.
The environment group purchased a tree to help give clean air to the school community. They purchased a native tree (Sienna Glenn Maple tree) from Oakland Nursery. They also held an electronic recycling drive to keep items from going into landfills.
The money leftover was donated to charities, including The Nature Conservancy group which is a non-profit organization that helps the local area keep parks, rivers clean.
