Teacher Feature: Check out Mr. Daum's explanation of what's happening in shop class: We first learned Ohm's Law and the electrical power equation. We used these to calculate power loads on different electrical circuits with varying loads (lights, tools, electric motors, etc.). We learned the basics of residential wiring, including some of the codes associated with that type of wiring. Then we framed up six 4'X8' stub walls which we are using to practice wiring techniques. For example, they were asked to wire two outlet boxes, a switch box and light fixture. They nailed on the boxes and drilled the necessary holes to pull the wire needed. They then wired the switch, outlets and light fixture. We are going to be adding other electrical elements, such as GFCI protected outlets and 3-way switches.

The “Good News Call” goes out today to Jessa VanZee. Jessa VanZee was observed in the lunchroom quietly assisting with table cleanup. She didn’t say anything, just picked up a rag and started helping. One of her classmates is absent and she took it upon herself to help us with the lunchroom cleanup. Thank you, Jessa, for quietly helping others and for noticing that we needed a hand today. You are a wonderful example of responsibility and kindness to all of our younger students.
