The library was back in action this week after being closed for most of the last two weeks for AP testing–just in time for Senior Seminars!
The Senior Seminars began this week and the library was host to some of these interesting and informative presentations: Financial Literacy with Mr. Talamantes, What to Take to College with Mrs. Talamantes, Forensic Case Studies with Ms. Dozier and Mr. Himes, College Research with Ms. Melinson, and Famous Supreme Court Cases with Mr. Strumpfer.
On Tuesday we had music in the library with the Middle School Jazz Band, High School Jazz Band, and High School Concert Band as they prepare for the Forum Music Festival competition.
On Thursday Ms. Nellis’ AP US History class was in to get research materials for their end of the year project. Students chose topics they previously learned about in class that interested them and could be expanded into a presentation that Ms. Nellis might use in her AP US History class next year. Topics include the U.S. reconstructing Japan after World War II, eugenics and DNA affecting the Civil Rights Movement, and how television affected US viewership of the Vietnam War.
On Friday we had a special lunch, the First Annual Raffle Lunch with Dr. Bell, where we celebrated Dr. Bell’s impending retirement. A group of former students and colleagues along with current students and colleagues gathered to celebrate Dr. Bell who has been “Bringing Back Smart” to Country Day for many years!
