C.A. Gray Junior High Students Work Together to Learn to Calculate Speed

Dr. Ann Horne’s classes at C. A. Gray Junior High School enjoyed a beautiful day outside while completing a lab about speed. Students used various forms of movement including hopping, walking normally, walking backwards, and speed walking.

September 21, 20168th Grade Media Center Orientation

Eighth grade students at C.A. Gray Junior High School visited the media center this week for orientation. After a refresher on using Destiny, the online card catalog, and a tour around the space, students broke out into groups for a scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt required participants to use each of the areas of the media center to answer questions. The students pictured here were searching the banned book display. The books featured have been banned not a C. A. Gray, but in other places for various reasons. The Lorax was banned in a library in California for demonizing the logging industry. The Harry Potter series has been banned for its use of witchcraft. For more information on banned books visit http://www.ala.org/bbooks/.
