The Biology students of Freshman Academy Team 1 ventured into the lab to practice DNA extraction. The students used everyday items that could be purchased in the local Walmart. Students were able to practice techniques that are used in labs for detecting viruses and bacteria in the environment. What’s next for our students? Could it be the forensics lab in Griffin, the GBI or the FBI? We are… Griffin!!!!

Prom Disaster Drill

PromDisasterDrill 2013_14

On April 10th, GHS students participated in a mock prom night disaster drill.    During the drill,  a scenario was presented where two cars with prom attendees crashed due to drunk driving. The drill included student actors being removed from the cars, breathalyzed, life flighted, and some even were portrayed as dead.   The event was held to show the dangers and devastation of drinking and driving.  We would like to thank the members of the community that came to help in the effort.   We wish everyone a fun and safe prom!

Freshman Academy Visits GCSU

9thGCSUvisit

Freshman Academy students went on a tour of Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville.  They were able to meet current students and learn about the expectations of college.  Several students stated that having the opportunity to tour colleges early has motivated them to want to do better in school.  This tour was made possible due to the generosity of the Partners in Education grant “If I Can See It, I Can Be It,” which was awarded to the Freshman Academy counselor in the fall.
