Drew Central High School Honor Roll (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.
Drew Central honored its spring sport seniors on the softball field. Senior Track athletes are Layne Brotherton and Efrain Garcia(Not pictured). Senior Softball athletes are Gretel Cruz and Kellie Moore. Senior Baseball athletes are Coltin Hampton, Keith Simpson, and Thomas Wilmoth. The seniors were recognized for their accomplishments over the past years as family and friends looked on.

Author Rooster Morris from Rockdale, Texas visited with Drew Central Elementary and Middle School students. Mr. Morris performed songs from his CD that accompanies his book series Axle Galench. He gave the students a book talk from the first book in the series Axle Galench and the Gate of No Return. The students were spellbound as Mr. Morris told the story of Axle Galench using different voices for each character and also making sound effects with his voice.
