Morenci plans summer school 06.02.10

Written by David Green.

Summer school classes in the core curriculum subjects will be offered again at Morenci Area High School.

An orientation session is scheduled June 10 in the middle school computer lab for courses in mathematics, science, social studies and English.

The classes are offered through the on-line Education 20/20 program. After the initial orientation meeting, students will work on their own via a high-speed internet connection. Computers are available at Stair Public Library if needed.

A final exam will be scheduled at the school at a time not yet determined.

The classes are offered for those in need of credit or for students who want to get a class out of the way before the next school year. The cost is $50 for each half-credit course. Credit will not be awarded until a final examination is passed.

For more information, contact the high school office or call 458-7502.

    on your mark, get set, drum!—Drew Joughin (black shirt), Maddox Joughin and Kaleea Braun took the front row last week when Angela Rettle and assistants led the Stair District Library Summer Reading Program kids in a session of cardio drumming. The sports and healthy living theme continued yesterday with a Mini Jamboree at Lake Hudson State Park arranged by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Next week’s program features the Flying Aces Frisbee show.
    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
