BCS STUDENTS PAWS TO LEARN

Cason Churchwell (12) and Charlie Sistrunk (7) share what they have learned.  

Story by Halie Burnside

     

    The beginning of the next semester for some students is the beginning of new classes or maybe a new schedule. For all students of BCS, they got a new class. PAWS to Learn was introduction to students to help them in their core classes, ACT scores, and skill building. In his new enrichment class, Cason Churchwell built his  self defense skills. On February the 15th, Cason learned how to get out a choke hold. Cason stated “I feel that it’s beneficial because in the event of me getting attacked, I have learned things that will help me get away.”

       Charlee Sistrunk also got to be in her new enrichment class. On February the 16th, Charlie was in Mrs. Donya Riles’s STEM class. When asked what they did that day Charlee said, “We made a funnel taped to a straw that made a ball ‘hover’ when you blew through the straw. It was a lot of fun.”

First Groundhog Day

2/2/1887

 

It featured the first groundhog weatherman. It was celebrated for the first time at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Germans expanded on this concept by selecting an animal the hedgehog. But when they got to Pennsylvania they traded the hedgehog for the groundhog because they were so plentiful in the Keystone State. That is how the first groundhog day came to be.
