BEAUFORT ACADEMY

• Friday, Oct. 31: Red Ribbon Week comes to an end, thank you to Doug Kahn and Dr. Clark Trask for being guest speakers during the week.

 Sixth grade students in Mrs. Patel’s science class at Beaufort Academy extended their knowledge of the atmosphere and applied the scientific method by creating a cloud in a cup. The students used water, shaving cream and their choice of food coloring. They observed the cloud absorb droplets of water and finally break. Pictured with his cup is Conner Aivaz.

SADD Club members, parents, faculty and staff members formed a ring of unity to show support against bullying at Battery Creek High School. A moment of silence was held in memory of all bullying victims.  The SADD Club also gave all BCHS teachers a handout and postcards with bullying statistics and donated Anti-Bullying/Anti-Drug stickers to some elementary students at Broad River Elementary, Shanklin Elementary, Mossy Oaks Elementary, and Beaufort Elementary schools.  In addition, the SADD Club provided Anit-Bullying posters for a number of BCHS teachers to post in their rooms.
