This is an invitation to all parents, grandparents, or any
interested parties to attend the next Gator Booster Club meeting on
March 12. During this meeting, we will elect new officers and
discuss future plans for False River Academy athletics and
facilities. Sometimes, it is hard to attend the monthly
meetings. We all have families, jobs, and other
obligations. However, we need to unite and make every effort
to be a part of this vital organization. At this meeting, we

recruits from not only the high school level, but middle and
elementary as well. If we all p...

In order to enrich recent lessons and to
demonstrate how math can be seen and used in everyday life, the
geometry classes created 2 types of projects. Some of the projects
were centered on polygons and their properties. Students found
"real-life" examples of 5 different polygons. They used their
knowledge and creativity to create poster displays and power points
that emphasized the polygons, their properties and, simply,
geometry in art. Other projects concentrated on the students'
knowledge of the midsegment theorem in triangles. The students
built very creative models of swing sets, with an emphasis on the
horizontal crossbar, which demonstrated their und...

Fifth-grade student McKenzie Boudreaux and her
father Chad Boudreaux spoke to McKenzie's class about the pH of
liquids. In their presentation, they explained that some liquids,
like lemon juice, are more acidic and other items, such as baking
soda, are just the opposite of acidic and are called bases.
McKenzie and her father explained why it is important to know the
differences between acids and bases, and how to test liquids to
determine their pH level. Students were given their own "mystery"
liquids to test in class. After the presentation, Chad Boudreaux
donated boxes of test strips, gloves, and two battery-powered pH
test meters to the fifth grade class.
