Our Aquaponics class hosted the kindergarten classes on their “Under The Sea Day”. We gave each class a tour of our aquaponics room and got to play with hydrophobic and kinetic sand. We want to thank the kindergarten classes for letting us celebrate their “25 Days to Graduation”. We would also like to give a special thanks to Mason Inmon from Mrs. Perkin's innovation lab class for cutting out fish to make a special place for our visitors to take pictures.

Over the past few years, West Greene Aquaponics students take care of Trout from January till May. During this time, our students are responsible for creating a habitat for the trout to grow in. After all the hard work these same students release the trout in Ohiopyle State Park, where these fish will continue to grow and contribute to the local ecosystem. Lastly, our students got to explore Ohiopyle State Park looking wildlife interactions and watershed interactions. This is all made possible by West Greene’s participation in the Trout in the Classroom program was made possible through a partnership between the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) and the Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited (PATU).

Members of the Youth Traffic Safety Council received signs sponsored by State Farm to help spread awareness in our community about the dangers of distracted driving. Members placed these signs in the lawn area in front of our school main entrance in hopes that all who pass by, student and adults alike, take note of the message and make the decision to reduce their distracted driving habits.
Hargus Creek Design students were tasked by Mrs. Cassie Edgreen from Waynesburg Healthcare and Rehabilitation to assist in helping to make their dementia unit look less like a hospital facility and more like a home. The students visited the facility in February to take measurements and brainstorm ideas for the space. Since then, students have been designing and preparing decals to hang on the walls and doors. Today, the students returned to the facility to apply the decals. Thank you to Waynesburg Healthcare and Rehabilitation for providing the students with this opportunity.

Letter from the past! Tyfani White (now Tyfani Graham) recently received a letter written back in 2008 to her future self as a project in Mr. Rychtarsky's Language Arts class. The project was used to teach letter writing skills. The final product was a letter to be written to yourself, to be opened after graduation from high school. Tyfani moved out of the district before her 2013 graduation, and the letter just surfaced as Mr. Rychtarsky was going through a few boxes, so it was time to reunite the letter with its owner - albeit 10 years after the intended date. Tyfani got a kick out of the content of the letter, which also included a photo of her and some friends sealed in the envelope. Tyfani has been employed as a Pharmaceutical Technician in WVU Ruby Hospital for 10 years. Thank you for sharing, Tyfani!
High School Students had the opportunity on April 12 to take the College Board's SAT in-house. Students took advantage of being able to take the exam here on campus without having to travel to another testing location. All testers were then treated to pizza for lunch. Thank you to our school administration for allowing this opportunity and to our School Counselor, Mrs. Berry-Sakai for planning and preparing for the day.
