Arcola Junior High students made solar ovens after analyzing data, testing different design solutions, and combining the best characteristics of each. The students applied scientific principles to design, construct, and test devices that maximized thermal energy. (Using the sun to heat up s'mores and hot dogs.)

Arcola Athletes - please mark your calendars and plan to get your sports physical at the Arcola Sarah Bush Clinic on June 6th between 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm. The cost of the physicals will be $20 and Sarah Bush will donate all the money back to the Arcola Sports Boosters organization. Incoming 6th graders and Freshman can not get their physicals during this time because they have to have school physical, not a sports physical.

The Youth Advisory Council gives the students a unique , hands-on experience in state government. They were given the opportunity to conduct a mock hearing on the recent passage of a bill. Our students were able to meet Senator Chapin Rose and Governor Bruce Rauner.
