Right now school and buses in Hillsboro are on time tomorrow...pending not much new snow. Bus routes will try on country roads where possible. North/south roads aren’t too bad. Drivers may call you if you need to meet the bus. If you have bad roads and can bring your child(ren) into school that will also help. Let’s hope this is our last round of snow! ❄️❄️
After discussions with ND Highway Patrol, Hillsboro and Central Valley FBLA WILL NOT be making the trip to Bismarck for State Leadership. This is in the best interest of everyone’s safety. Think Spring!

School Safety By Superintendent Paula Suda After the February 14 tragedy in Parkland, Florida, some students, teachers, administrators, and parents in our community are struggling. We are struggling with fears and anxieties about the possibility of such a thing happening in our town, in our school, to our children. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that it won’t ever happen in any school in the country. Therefore, we must empower ourselves in all of the ways available to us to prevent and/or protect against such events occurring here. Parents, please continue to talk to your kids about how to stay safe and keep others safe. Make sure they know they should to talk to you, or to an administrator, teacher, or counselor if they see or hear anything from other students or on social media that is concerning or threatening. In nearly all cases of school violence, someone knew something about the perpetrator’s intentions before it actually happened. The National Association of School Psychologists website gives parents and teachers tips for these types of conversations with students. Teachers and administrators, will continue to be vigilant as well. Encourage students to report any mean behavior or threats. Know that when we have lockdown drills, many students are anxious and fearful. They never hear about a fire in school, so fire drills are routine. They now hear almost weekly about a school shooting somewhere, so every drill has the potential to create anxiety. Teachers and administrators are also anxious. They are the ones responsible for keeping the children safe. They must know and practice the appropriate protocol for a given situation that helps keep students as safe as possible under the circumstances. We have taken school safety very seriously in our school district. We practice lockdowns, and when appropriate, initiate lockdowns in response to circumstances in the school or the community. We collaborate with our local law enforcement and school districts to make sure we all use the same protocol and that our practices in emergencies are based on the best and most recent research. We do not share specific strategies publicly, because to do so could inform someone with ill intent how we will respond during a crisis. Students can talk to parents or school staff about what they can do to make schools safer. If a parent or child has a specific question about our practices, we may be able to answer that question privately. Together, we can help diminish the risk of a tragedy occurring in our community, and we will continue to be diligent to ensure that we are prepared to respond appropriately if it ever does.
Pepfest! Reminder there will be a Pepfest for the Boys Basketball team Wednesday at 2 PM at the HEC! Come for some fun and wish them luck!

Microsoft Announce Expanded Partnership For High School Tech Education Microsoft TEALS Program to Launch and Expand in ND BISMARCK, N.D., Jan. 22, 2018 – State School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler on Monday announced a new partnership with Microsoft Corp., and said she is gauging interest from local superintendents and high schools in utilizing a unique program for computer science instruction. Microsoft will be expanding its Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) program to North Dakota by hiring a full-time, North Dakota-based coordinator, volunteering some of its own employees and expert instructors as classroom teachers, and exploring further investments to expand this innovative program for North Dakota high school students, Baesler said during an event at the Bismarck Career Academy and Technical Center. “I want to thank Microsoft for starting this program and investing additional staff resources to support it,” Baesler said. “In North Dakota, we are used to planting crops and doing what is needed to bring in a bountiful harvest. Microsoft is offering some top-quality engineering and computer science education seeds for our schools, and I look forward to continue working with them to support these types of programs.” In the TEALS program, a volunteer computer science professional from Microsoft or another industry partner teams up with a classroom instructor to team-teach computer science courses. The classroom teacher gradually takes over instruction as she or he gains knowledge of the subject. Baesler said teachers of various educational backgrounds can use Microsoft TEALS both to learn computer science concepts and how to teach them. “This program is about problem solving and being creative,” Baesler said. “It teaches our students to think rigorously and systematically. It helps to teach the North Dakota values of persistence, tenacity and self-reliance.” The superintendent said Microsoft TEALS is much more than helping students become familiar with technology. “Computer science is about creating technology, rather than just using it,” she said. “To use one analogy, it is not about driving a car. It is about designing and building a car.” Taya Spelhaug, Microsoft’s TechSpark manager for North Dakota, emphasized how essential it is for high schools to teach computer science, given that technology affects almost every element of our daily lives. “Learning to code, through Microsoft’s TEALS program, will help our students unlock exciting career opportunities and thrive in an increasingly digital economy,” Spelhaug said. “Governor Doug Burgum and state school Superintendent Kirsten Baesler’s leadership made possible this opportunity for North Dakota students to learn computer science.” The Department of Public Instruction has successfully advocated a number of initiatives to encourage computer science programs and instruction in North Dakota’s schools. At Baesler’s urging, the 2017 Legislature approved a new law that allows a high school student to substitute a rigorous computer science course for a mathematics class to meet North Dakota’s requirement that he or she have three units of math to graduate. The law took effect last August. The NDDPI has obtained legislative support for students to take Advanced Placement courses in science, computer science, math and English. Each student may take at least one exam in those AP subjects for free during their high school careers. The tests normally cost almost $100 each. Last month, Baesler encouraged North Dakota schools to take part in the “Hour of Code” national event during Computer Science Education Week. According to Code.org, a nonprofit organization that is supported by the technology industry, North Dakota has more than 600 open computing jobs, which have an average annual salary of more than $70,000. Ninety-three percent of parents want their child’s school to teach computer science, but only 40 percent of schools teach it, according to Code.org. Students who learn computer science in high school are six times more likely to major in computer science in college. Baesler said Hillsboro High School in the Red River Valley is the only North Dakota high school with a Microsoft TEALS program. She hopes it will catch on with many others. “I’ve met some of their students at Hillsboro. I’ve met their teacher and their principal,” Baesler said. “It’s a program that these students are excited about learning. It’s a class that the students who are involved in it are really excited about going to. They see how this relates to the future occupations that they want, and the doors this class is opening up for them.”

General Biology doing some gram staining. Gram staining is a common technique used to differentiate two large groups of bacteria based on their different cell wall constituents. The Gram stain procedure distinguishes between Gram positive and Gram negative groups by coloring these cells red or violet. Gram positive bacteria stain violet due to the presence of a thick layer of peptidoglycan in their cell walls, which retains the crystal violet these cells are stained with. Alternatively, Gram negative bacteria stain red, which is attributed to a thinner peptidoglycan wall, which does not retain the crystal violet during the decoloring process.
