Let’s face it, the majority of us can’t even draw a stick figure without feeling like a complete failure. So can you even imagine how hard it would be to create images as beautiful as the one below?

Now imagine doing it blind. That’s right, the artist behind this stunning photo is Pete Eckert, a photographer, and painter suffering from retinitis pigmentosa, a disease that causes its victims to slowly lose their vision until they can no longer see anything. More…

Woodshop students are building away in room G-3. The students are building basketball hoops, walking ducks, wooden airplanes, Co2 Racecars, and other cool things too.

Mr. Olmscheid is teaching the students how to cut, drill, sand, polish, and paint wood. The advanced woodshop students also have been working on 3D printing.

The students like their teacher and enjoy the class.

Mason Haynes is working on a basketball hoop. He said, “I like my teacher. He is very nice and has taught me a lot.”

Chloe Mahurien says, “Mr. Olmscheid is really nice. He is willing to help anyone who needs it. I love this class.”

From what the students have said, this seems like a very fun class to take.

Teachers are important in helping students learn, but students, parents, and caregivers all play vital roles in the homework process. So how can teachers use homework to make students feel like they are learning?

All students must set goals for themselves. The goals shouldn’t be impossible, but possible so that students can reach them. Parents must let students know that homework meaning and not doing homework can cause consequences such as a significant drop in grades.

The major academic purposes of homework are that the students can review and understand what they just learned so that they can get ready for the next day of school, using resources such as the Internet and encyclopedias, and explore subjects more than time permits in the classroom. More…

Since Donald Trump’s election as president of the United States, Kim Jong Un, the Supreme People’s Assembly leader, and Donald J. Trump have been verbally “taking shots” at each other. North Korea and the United States have been threatening each other since the American/Korean war in 1950, but the election of Trump triggered something and brought the threats up another octave.

On August 1, 2017,  Kim Jong Un told reporters that North Korea’s military had constructed a surplus amount of new and destructive nuclear missiles that are able to reach America from North Korea. Kim Jong Un also stated that he would execute an experiment where he would launch three missiles near the shores of Guam, a U.S. military base, by mid-August, 2017. 

President Trump responded to this threat in an interview saying, “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury, and frankly power by the likes of which this world has never seen before.” The missile strikes never did occur. More…
