Rick Best, Ohio Fire Academy’s Eastern advocate manager, hosted the group and explained a number of aspects of academy training, including arson investigations, the evidence chain, training facilities, burn buildings and emergency services.

Students Jesse Kean, Aaron Kean and Greg Bryant said they are interested in continuing their families’ traditions of serving as firefighters in the DeGraff and Quincy.

Riverside High School guidance counselor Connie Beatty helped to coordinate this trip. She also recently arranged a full-day of student visits to Georgetown College and University of Kentucky.

Coloring book creation

Members of the graphic design course created the coloring books using Photoshop software. Sample copies were sent to first-grade students for review. The younger students learned about evaluation tools such as rubrics as well as basic components of design. The evaluations then were returned to the graphic design students at the high school. Finally, each first-grader was able to select a coloring book of their choice to keep. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)

Christmas cookie calculations

Their class measured the flour, sugar and baking powder to make the cookie dough. Then they were able to roll out the dough and choose their own cookie shape. Not surprisingly, the pupils said the best part of the lesson was partaking of the cookies. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)
