Mr. Swanhorst's class has been working on an obituary assignment. The Obituary activity is a small group project as a follow up to our substance unit Health class. The students select a drug with the main objective of researching it thoroughly to capture a deeper understanding of the substance. The groups are required to present their research, construct a poster about the drug, and to create a fictitious Obituary of a person dying due to the drug use. The process allows the students to work with others to accomplish required tasks and to experience public speaking. The challenge on the poster is to develop it so it is eye-catching and informative because they are posted on the wall outside the classroom for the student body and faculty to learn from their hard work.
Thank you to the many sponsors, Ranger Ride and The CRES Physical Education Program were able to purchase a bike fleet and helmets! These will be available for Phy. Ed classes at CRES and for anyone who needs a mountain bike during Ranger Rides! Sign-up for Ranger Ride will start in April.

This year’s National Nutrition Month theme is Personalize Your Plate. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and health. We are all unique with different bodies, goals, backgrounds and tastes! And a registered dietitian nutritionist can tailor a healthful eating plan that is as special as you are.
