Simple week

Not much happened this week in Kearney , I had a safety meeting for detasseling but otherwise we really didn’t have anything scheduled. This gave me time to read, play video games and be with Megan. We went fishing one night and caught some bluegill. We also took the dogs on some walks. The biggest…

Science on the Platte

Last weekend was the Nebraska State USAYESS Shoot. As a team we did pretty well, we took home some team medals and individual medals. It was a pretty fun three days. On Monday and Tuesday I went to a conference at Rowe Sanctuary to dive deeper into the Nebraska state science standards. It was a…

June!

It’s June first! I like June, my birthday is this month and it’s the one month between School and detasseling that I don’t have to work. I still do work on stuff, I’ve started my dual credit class for the fall and I have a workshop next week but I don’t HAVE to do anything….

Nebraska City

Good morning, I’m writing today from the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City. Megan surprised me with a getaway for a couple of days. We got here last night and today are going to explore the Arbor Day Farms stuff. Megan has only been here once and I’ve only been once more in 4th grade. It’ll…

SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER

Finals are done here at Kearney Catholic and we’re out for the summer. We’ve had a great semester in all 4 of my classes. It’s always a mix of feelings during this time of the year ranging from excitement to be done and sadness to leave. I think the students are ready to go and…

Final Friday

The last Friday of the school year is upon us and we’re wrapping things up here at KCHS. The 7th graders took their human body test yesterday and started their semester reviews and the bio students did likewise today. Those tests went well, which is nice for our last one of the semester. The seniors…

Seniors last week and state trap

It was the last week at Kearney Catholic for seniors and as such it’s always an interesting week. There’s a mix of excitement to be done and sadness to leave, but overall I think the week went well. We finished up with a test in advanced biology and then some more labs in chem. I…

Pig week!

The biggest thing we did this week in my class was dissect fetal pigs. We spent 4 days dissecting them and looked at their digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, and nervous systems. It’s a fun lab and really helps wrap up the year in advanced bio. The 7th graders have started the human body and the…

Separating liquids?

This has been a pretty fun week at least in my opinion. In 7th we talked about how plants move in response to light and gravity and then we planned for a Martian green house and what that would need to survive. In bio we’ve been learning about reptiles, birds, and mammals. We did a…

Snow in april

We started the week with prom on Sunday. Its a fun time to see all the Junior and Seniors dressed up and looking nice. They also got Monday off school so that made Monday a bit slow for me. In 7th we’re learning about plants and studied germination. We started to grow some seeds in…

April’s here

April’s here at KCHS and we had a 4 day week! The week started with Easter and Megan and I went to the Holy week Masses at both Prince or Peace and St. James. They were all good and it was neat to see the different students at each parish. The Chem students are learning…

Fridays off mess me up…

This was Holy Week and here at KCHS we didn’t have school on Friday. It’s been very nice teaching at a Catholic School and this week reminds me more of that. I made a point to make a post on my day off but yet again forgot. Here are some cool things from the last…
