During the month of July, Mrs. Beresford went on an exciting research experience. The Great Lakes Water Institute invited her and seven other teachers to travel with Dr. Cuhel and Dr. Aguilar, host researchers for the JASON Project this year, aboard the research vessel The Neeskay. The team made two trips to gather information on the invasive Quagga mussel species.
On the first trip, the team traveled to five different water sites. At each site, they collected water samples, temperature, light penetration, and mussels. They used the information to test hypotheses and to learn how scientists conduct research in the field. On the second trip, they conducted experiments at the shipwreck of the Prins Willem V that sank in the 1950s to see how the Quagga mussels are influencing the wreck and vice versa. This time they were able to use the Remote Operated Vehicle or ROV to collect samples as well as professional divers.
St. Bernard students went back to school on Tuesday, August 25, 2009! The kids were excited to see old faces and make new friends! Parents were thrilled at the coffee and donuts reception graciously hosted by the Home and School Association. Space is still available for the 2009-2010 school year at St. Bernard in grade levels K3-8. St. Bernard School has been serving the community for nearly 98 years. We offer Spanish instruction K4-8.
