Drew Central High School 2nd 9 Weeks Honor Roll:
Katelyn Bostian, sixth grader at Drew Central is the top Accelerated Reader in the middle school. The students get rewards for reading so many points. When they reach 200 points, they are given gift cards for each 100 points that they read and test. Katelyn asked that the money that would be spent on the gift cards be donated to a local animal shelter. Katelyn is a great example for the other students at Drew Central Middle School.
Drew Central fourth graders participated in the 2015 One Hour of Code which is a one-hour activity designed for students of all ages.
The largest learning event in history kicks off during Computer Science Education Week, December 7-13. The goal was to have a global movement with millions of students from around the world learning about coding at the same time. Students can choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, for kindergarten and up. Once students see what they create right before their eyes, they’re empowered to keep going. Why computer science? Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to take part in creating technology that’s changing the world. The basics help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for any future career. By exposing both girls and boys to fundamental computing concepts on a level playing field, we can inspire today’s generation of students to build technology. (more…)

Drew Central Jr. Band performed at the Arkansas Association of Middle Level Education Annual Professional Development Conference at the Hot Springs Convention Center. Under the direction of John Kloap.
Drew Central fourth grade students in Eva Arrington’s class learned about “Cephalopods: The Jet Set.” Students learned to classify by kingdom, phylum, and class. They worked with their lab partner and researched the four main types of cephalopods: octopus, squid, cuttlefish, and nautilus. Cephalopod means head and feet. Cephalopods do not have a torso.
The Distance Learning program at Drew Central Elementary in conjunction with the Alaska Sealife Center in Seward, Alaska guided students on dissecting squid. Students discovered the ink sac which squids use to confuse their enemies. They located the eyes, mouth, two tentacles, pen, etc. Students looked for the reproductive system to determine if their squid was a male or female. Another discovery was that squids have bilateral symmetry.
