Students interested in science and research...


For the past several years the National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research (the Ag lab) has been pleased to offer students the opportunity to interact with our researchers and have some hands-on experience in the lab.  This year the event will be held on Wednesday November 9th, 2017.  Please see your counselor for a description of the location and research history, deadlines and application requirements, and the dates when students would be notified of their acceptance into the program.


As an overview, the goal of this program is to identify students with a keen interest in science and provide them with a full day of hands-on experience in a working research environment.


Any high school student in the 11th or 12th grade, with 3 semesters of High School lab science and in good academic standing may apply.




It’s that time of year again: Inktober. This is a drawing challenge where you create an ink drawing for every day of October. Think you can do it? Join the Google Classroom with the code bj2gar and post your work there. Also head on over to the library, where you can have your drawings hung up in the windows to show off your talent.

Draw something for all 31 days and there may be a sweet treat for you at the end!

Questions? Email Miss Woods at [email protected] or drop by room 1G.
