Moon Shot Field Trip museum center

The entire 7th grade from R.A. Jones Middle School went on a field trip to the Cincinnati Museum Center this week. The theme of their work across classes is "How Do Communities Work Together to Achieve Moon Shots?" The students have been reading the book titled: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. They attended the Holocaust and Humanity Center for a guided tour. Prior to visiting the museum, they watched a video about President John F. Kennedy's moon shot speech. While at the museum, the students went to see Apollo 11 in the Omni Max Theatre and were treated to a tour of the Rotunda. There was a question and answer session brainstorming how people achieve great things in life.

Tobacco Free tobacco free

In 2019, the Kentucky legislature passed HB11, a statewide 100% Tobacco Free School bill. 100% Tobacco Free Schools prohibit tobacco use, including vapor products and alternative nicotine products, by staff, students and visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, inside Board-owned buildings or vehicles, on school owned property and during school-sponsored events, trips and activities. The primary goals of these policies include reducing exposure to secondhand smoke and encouraging tobacco users to consume less of the addictive product.
The more significant long-term effect of these policies, however, is to reduce youth tobacco use by reducing student exposure to tobacco use as an acceptable behavior by role models important to their development. For additional information about tobacco free schools, visit the Tobacco Free Schools website.
