Bulldog Patrol
At the April 11th board meeting, Claysburg-Kimmel Elementary's Bulldog Patrol was recognized.  The ten members of the Bulldog Patrol monitor the hallways and common areas during morning transition and afternoon dismissal.  They keep the halls safe and make sure students are getting to the appropriate classrooms.  These students were placed on the Bulldog Patrol because they embody the strong, positive values that CKE emphasizes to our student body.  They are also well respected by their peers and admired by our younger students.  CKE is extremely proud of the Bulldog Patrol members.  All ten of them have done a marvelous job of keeping our students safe!

CKHS Students place 3rd
at Thermo Fisher Scientific STEM Design Challenge

On Friday, April 6th, seventh graders Hunter Knisely, Nathan Miller, and Britnee Robertson won 3rd place out of 16 teams in the Thermo Fisher Scientific STEM Design Challenge hosted by Appalachia IU 8 and held at Mount Aloysius College.  The middle school competition included teams from Windber, Turkeyfoot Valley, Meyersdale, Johnstown, Ferndale, Claysburg-Kimmel, and Altoona school districts.  Thermo Fisher Scientific prompted a design challenge in which teams were asked for help developing a new product for your home. This product can be anything that you can use in your home and it must be environmentally friendly. Thermo Fisher Scientific is working to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer. This product could be (but not limited to) a new way to power your home, a new type of appliance, or a new gadget for home entertainment. Students were only allowed to use K'Nex pieces for their end product. Groups were judged on creativity, teamwork, challenge success, design, and presentation.  In addition to building a product out of K’Nex, students also had to complete a parts inventory and a budget as well as a blueprint of their design and a journal documenting the design process.

April AGH Picture

Six students in Mrs. Beers' Honors Anatomy and Physiology class travelled with her to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh today (April 2) for an educational field trip .  Allegheny General Hospital's Cardiovascular Institute provided an opportunity for the students to observe an open heart surgery. Specifically, the students witnessed an aortic valve replacement and the preparations for the replacement of a mitral valve.   The group was escorted by an Allegheny General staff member, who remained with them throughout the surgery to explain, step-by-step, what students were observing and to answer any questions they had during the procedure.  Exclaimed student Chance Harr: “This is the best day of my life! I am so glad I got up at 4:30 AM for this!”  Mrs. Beers intends to incorporate the field trip into the Honors Anatomy and Physiology class in the years to come. Pictured left to right at an entrance to Allegheny General Hospital: Kassidy Burket, Hunter Evans, Chance Harr, Kayla Fluke, Emily Walter, and Karly Kriedler.
