Congratulations to our Junior High students who recently completed the History Fair program. This educational experience is a cross-curriculum program including both History and Language Arts. Each student was required to do a research paper on a topic relating to Rights and Responsibilities throughout history while correlating the topic to Illinois history as well. This process teaches the students how to research, analyze information and formulate a paper with proper notes and reference materials. Once the paper is completed each student prepares a display board and a presentation on their topic that is presented at a judging competition.
It is a broad learning experience that gives Holy Family Junior High students an important educational experience relating to deadlines, ,writing, speech preparation and more. We are very proud of all our students and the academic excellence they displayed. Also, thank you to all our judges who help evaluate our students.
Bridge-Pal Program with Bradley University
Recently many Holy Family Junior High students traveled to Bradley University in Peoria as a part of the "Bridge-Pal Program" This is the 7th year Holy family has participated in this exciting program which is aimed at fostering an interest in engineering among middle and high school students. Yesterday our students worked on their blueprints with engineering students and brought home supplies to assist as they prepare for the competition in February in Peoria.
As the program continues they will work in teams and construct their bridges in school during electives under the guidance of a professional engineer, Wayne Hood, and our science teacher Cinda Farris.
