On Friday, February 2, the students of National Junior Honor Society were privileged to welcome fifteen new members for the upcoming year! Qualifying for NJHS is a significant accomplishment; students are only able to apply if they retain a 90 or higher in each core class.
Students in the Middle School Inquiry Based Science elective have been busy studying the various zones of the ocean in preparation for their current Bycatch Project. Students are using the engineering design process to design their nets, build prototypes and test them.
National Art Honor Society had a field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. The NAHS students took a journey through the ages of history in art from the museum’s permanent collection, which covers world cultures dating from antiquity to the present.
Students in grades 6-12 were given an extra spiritual challenge as a part of the annual CCS Spiritual Emphasis Days. The focus of the three days was on “Habitudes.” A “Habitude” is defined as a leadership skill presented in a vivid picture that impacts our habits and our attitudes.
Elementary, middle school and high students participated in the "Operation Christmas Child" project through Samaritan’s Purse. The Christmas boxes will be delivered to children in countries all around the world. This is a wonderful way for students to help send the gospel message to a child in another country. Overall, 169 boxes were packed!
Biomedical science students investigated how insulin and glucose are involved in cell communication. Students used a design process to create a 3-D working model demonstrating how insulin works to move glucose into cells, and to explain this process to their target audience.
Eighth graders experienced firsthand how the Supreme Court of the United States functions as part of their study of American history. After learning how cases are selected, presented in court and then decided, students were given a real court case and held a mock trial.
Chemistry students celebrated a unit of measurement known as a mole. Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 10^23) which is used to convert between atoms/molecules and grams. The students had fun creating stuffed moles, naming them, and costuming them appropriately.
The Middle School Science Elective is at it again! Over the past several weeks, students have explored various areas of science including biochemistry, oceanography, architecture, organic chemistry and engineering.
This exciting addition to the curriculum allows students to take what they are learning in Mrs. Hinn’s Life Science class and apply it (hands-on) in the outdoors. Students had access to resources such as challenge courses, parrots, snakes, canoes, zip lines, star-gazing, climbing walls and laser games with instruction from Christian counselors.
Thirty Middle School National Junior Honor Society members had a chance to serve at Kids Meals of Houston. All enthusiastically agreed that it was a wonderful opportunity to represent Christ and to serve others in our Houston community!
