The juniors have been working extremely hard on their final assessment for Of Mice and Men. For their final assessment, in groups they wrote and performed a skit. Their skit had to be centered around irony, which is the concept we focused on while reading Of Mice and Men. The students had a lot of fun creating these skits, and learned collaboration skills, how to write a script, and apply irony in a creative way.

The Art Students at Fort Calhoun High School created a 9′ x12′ mural made up of 108 canvas panels. The figure is of our school mascot, The Pioneer. This has been in the making since last Spring but it was just recently hung on the wall of the Commons. The original design was created by Junior Skylar Wear but the painting of each panel was done by many of our Art Students.
