Students Testing Seismograph Projects
Science classes are studying Earth and it"s interior. Students will learn about how scientists know about the structure and composition of the interior of the Earth (without being able to see it). Seismic data, graphics, charts digital displays and cross sections must be used to study the Earth's interior. Actual data from the refraction and reflection of seismic waves can be used to demonstrate how scientists have determined the different layers of the Earth's interior. New discoveries and technological advances relating to understanding Earth's interior also play an important role in this content.

AWJH Constitution Day Design Winners
On a remarkable day in history, thirty nine delegates etched their signatures, forever ensuring the basic freedoms we celebrate today. Just four years following the signing of the Treaty of Paris, colonial leaders found themselves locked in another epic struggle, protecting the rights of newly freed Americans and replacing the heavily flawed Articles of Confederation.
Drafting a new government model caused significant issues between two emerging political parties, the Federalists and Antifederalists. Sharing their views and beliefs for a new post-war America, the country's leading delegates were able to draft a new resolution, a resolution that laid the foundation for principles including check and balances, limited powers, representative democracy, popular sovereignty, separation of powers, and the concept of shared powers, also known as federalism.
Each year on September 17, students across the country celebrate the signing of the Constitution in Philadelphia. Students were asked to design a patriotic poster that incorporated team work, influential amendments, and the enduring American dream. The top five drawings from each class are being submitted to the national competition in Washington D.C.. These pictured students were chosen by staff members as the AWJH Constitution Day design winners.
AWJH winners left to right: Ashley Wise 3rd Place, Emily Ray 1st Place, Ariel Tonkel 2nd Place.
Congratulations once again on an outstanding job of representing your school, community, and country.
