Walsh High School would like to thank the Cooper-Clark Foundation for sponsoring the purchase of forty TI-84 Plus calculators.\xA0 This allowed our math classrooms to be fully equipped with functional calculators and accessible to our 7-12 math students.

Pictured below are the seventh grade students, along with their teacher Mrs. Sires, trying them out!







The Walsh High School FOR Club members (Friends of Rachel) held an activity for all high school students during advisory class on Thursday October, 25. The students participated in a game called telephone. In this game, one person starts a sentence and whispers it in the person\'s ear sitting next to them. You can only say the sentence once to the person. This process continues until the phrase reaches \xA0the person at the end of the line and is announced out loud. We compare this to the starting phrase to see how much it changes. This game is an example of how words can be twisted around and misconstrued when traveling through several people. It is stressed to think before you speak and it\u2019s best to avoid talking about others.

The second activity was to focus on students interacting with each other and having fun. We played musical chairs and when a person was bumped out, they received a treat. The treat was a cookie with a random act of kindness taped to it. Students were asked to carry out this act of kindness and pin it to the bulletin board in the junior high hallway to show we are incorporating kindness in our school.
