2014 Science Bowl Winners

Three Friendship Junior High School students represented the winning team in the CCSD59 Science Bowl. The team shared their successful team strategies with the board of education, and the board recognized the team for their outstanding performance and successful, winning efforts.

Lessons from the Garden

Did you know planting zucchini after the 4th of July will prevent a squash bug infestation? Have you ever tried using soapy water to control Japanese beetles? Students from Ridge Family Center shared these tips and more as they discussed the success of the Ridge student garden. The garden has produced enough produce to allow students to successfully sell the fruits of their labor at the Market Club. They have also donated a variety of vegetables at the local food pantry.
