Hoopeston Area board hears students

According to the Commercial News, Chris Catron and Marisa Rush, John Greer Grade School students who participated in the Chrome Books pilot program, presented research projects on teen activism to Hoopeston Area school board members during Thursday’s meeting.
The presentations were part of Rachel Zick’s sixth-grade class writing curriculum. The students had to find the motivation, research and create a web page about activism in a field that interested them using the Chrome books. Each student will be able to continue with the web pages indefinitely at home, Zick said.
Catron picked the medical field, he said, because his mom, Connie Catron, a nurse practitioner, went to Madagascar in Africa last October to help people medically.
Rush picked anorexia for her web page and the effects of anorexia on a person’s body.
The students also set up blogs with several questions for people to add comments about the subjects of their research.
Catron issued a word of advice to other students,”Don’t work yourself into the ground or you won’t have success.”
In other school board business, FFA student Olivia Huls presented a check to the school board for payment on the greenhouse. Emily McCray, FFA instructor, reported that all the corn crops has been planted, including an additional 4.5 acres behind the bowling alley, and all was sold.
