Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center
Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center
01/03/2020
Thank you to Ms. Monaco and Mrs. Guerrero for taking a group of our students on a field trip to the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center. Here is a description from junior, Adriana DelValle: "On January 2, 2020, Ms. Monaco’s English 11 class took a field trip to Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center. Our tour guide, James Ponzo, was fantastic. He interacted with all of the students by making the tour like a dialogue and asking questions to further involve the students. I liked how knowledgeable and insightful the tour guide was. On the tour, students were told stories of the Underground Railroad. The part that stood out to me is when we came across a replica of a bridge between the United States and Canada; on one side it said “United States Slavery” and on the other side it said “Canada free state.” It is amazing to think that if you were enslaved, just by crossing a bridge or the river, you could become free. The most interesting part of the tour was the interactive pieces in the museum that helped me understand the stories told and how enslaved people were able to escape and become free or even help others escape. For example, they had a table with a projector over the table which projected the wait staff from the Cataract House.The tour helped me to further understand what freedom means to me and how some people’s human rights are restricted here in the U.S. and internationally." What an incredible opportunity to to learn United State history first hand.

Urinalysis Lab
Living Environment Urinalysis Lab
12/19/2019
Check out Ms. Schrader's Living Environment class! "We’ve spent the last two weeks learning about the human body systems. To wrap up our first 5 systems we completed a urinalysis lab. Students tested for pH, glucose, and protein in the urine, then we used microscopes to see if there was any crystals, red blood cells, or white blood cells in the urine. Students were then able to diagnose our “patients”. This was a super fun lab and the kids loved it!!"
