Mystery Math Night

Mystery Math Night- Students participated in an after-school workshop to explore the art of finding solutions to math problems in order to solve a mystery.  We turned the school into a big clue game board to find clues for which teacher took the cookies out of the cookie jar, with what drink, in what room, and at what time.  Students advanced from room-to-room solving math problems in order to obtain a clue.  Using process of elimination, the students raced to be first to guess correctly and win the game! All the students earned a detective badge and magnifying glass at the conclusion of the workshop.Special thanks to Mrs. Klobucar, Mr. DePhillips, and Ms. Sprung for facilitating the event.



ROX visits IUP

The HW GOOD ROX girls went to IUP on Tuesday April 15, 2014 for a career exploration experience. The girls took a campus tour and met with students involved in: mathematics, science, technology, and engineering majors.

While ROX encourages individual girl empowerment by teaching conflict resolution, life skills, building healthly relationships, the curriculum also focuses on life after school and making career choices. This fieldtrip allowed the girls to view additional opportunities in a college setting.


 On April 8, 2014 from 6:30-8:30 pm in the high school auditorium, the Drug Prevention Committee, which is made up by administrators, staff and board members, are sponsoring a Drug Symposium for the students, parents, and community members of the Yough School District.  We are excited about providing this opportunity for our community in the hopes of bringing awareness of the issues surrounding drugs and alcohol.
