Chemistry and Art III -- Creative PartnershipTop of Page

Grants from Mississippi Professional Educators and Donor's Choose allowed the SP art and science classes to purchase two pottery kilns.
Through implementation of pottery making technology, we have been able to add depth to lessons in art and science that was not possible before. Student pottery projects included design and completion of a finished piece of art, while using higher level thinking along with scientific experimentation, research, and writing skills. Students learned the stages in making pottery and the effect on the clay in each stage.  They really enjoyed the project which gave them unique experiences and a chance to be creative while learning.  Future projects include glass working using these kilns and development of a dedicated art and science facility on campus.
Sharon Schaefer teaches Chemistry and Sandra Wise teaches Art.

Math & Science Team CompetesTop of Page

Students on the SP math and science team represented the school at the Math and Science competition at Mississippi College on Thursday, February 2nd.  Students competed in individual tests in math, physics, chemistry, or biology and four students competed in a quiz bowl. All students did a great job and represented us well. Of the 12 that attended, 3 scored in the top 20% in math and 1 scored in the top 30% in chemistry. They were competing with students from 40 MS schools, including the academies, prep schools, and Mississippi School for Math and Science.
