For the past fourteen years our seventh grade students have journeyed to Cape Cod for a four day/three night field experience with Nature's Classroom. The essential question they investigate while visiting various marine environments is "What is our shared responsibility in using and protecting global and local resources?" Over the course of the trip students spent time at Chapin Beach, which is a tidal beach, and the National Seashore.
Students in Señor Henderson's 8th grade Spanish class learned a little about the Huichol people in Mexico and their famous yarn paintings. Students perused authentic paintings on their Chromebooks and tried to replicate some of the designs. They did an amazing job, as you can see! Bravo, estudiantes!

On Tuesday, March 22, 2016, Inter-Lakes Junior/Senior High School sponsored a visit from award winning author Sharon Draper. Mrs. Lorch and Mrs. Manville worked in conjunction with our librarian Mrs. Miller to plan this activity. Ms. Draper's visit was funded by a generous contribution from the Inter-Lakes PTO. Ms. Draper has written a wide variety of literature for adolescent readers including Stella by Starlight, Out of My Mind, Copper Sun, The Jericho Trilogy, The Hazelwood Trilogy, Panic, Double Dutch and many more.
In preparation for Ms. Draper's visit, all seventh grade students completed a group read of Stella by Starlight. This book tells the story of a family living in North Carolina during the 1930's and the struggles they faced related to racial equality. In eighth grade, students read the book Copper Sun.
Mrs. Clogston's cooking class were thrilled when they found out that Chef Lashunda Allen from "Ooo La La Creative Cakes LLC" was coming to teach them how to decorate cupcakes. She taught them how to make swirly striped buttercream and how to pipe roses, leaves, and weaving designs. The cupcakes were topped with lots of glitter and sprinkles. They were delicious! Hannah Ainsworth (who is on the left) is interested in a career as a baker/pastry chef and was able to learn some new piping skills to share as she attends the Culinary Program at The Huot Center in Laconia.
