High School Biology students investigate the effects of pH and temperature on the enzyme catalase. Catalase is an important enzyme in our livers that reduces the toxic chemical hydrogen peroxide. Thus, students begin to see the narrow conditions our body must sustain in order to remain free from harm.

Last Saturday, the CMIS National Honor Society members met up at school for a leadership retreat. Throughout the day, members participated in activities designed by other members. These activities reflected the four pillars of NHS: Leadership, Scholarship, Service, and Character. This experience enabled members from different grades to get to know and bond with each other. Towards the end of the retreat, members brainstormed ideas for various NHS projects this year. Let’s make this year a great one!

Last week, 3B enjoyed working together to find supporting details for topic sentences. In small groups, we looked through the biographical book The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau to find information about Cousteau's inventions and films. We later used this information to write paragraphs. We have been using personal foam mats for flexible, physically distanced seating during partner and group work time.
