Some of our FTP ambassadors painting the town blue, one Falcon at a time! During zero period, students came to have their faces painted for the pep rally! It was a great start to our Friday!
In Ms. Demark's Environmental Science class, students practiced methods in research by stating claims, producing evidence and reasoning results using Dubia roaches. Bugs were given a choice of a wet or dry environment. No bugs were harmed!

Greater Egg is again parenting with Stockton for our annual Greater Egg Day at Stockton University!!! This is a tremendous opportunity for our juniors and seniors to have exclusive access to Stockton's staff and facilities on Saturday, September 23rd. Stockton University is running a program exclusive to Greater Egg students only, including information on Financial Aid, Credits earned/Dual Enrollment, Campus Tours, and INSTANT DECISIONS (ACCEPTANCES). Last year over 50 families participated, with students gaining acceptance commitments that day and many learning they could reduce their time at Stockton by 1 or 2 semesters (time and money saved) thanks to our Dual Enrollment programs. Additionally, we will be creating a program this year to have Stockton students who were "First Generation College Students" themselves assist our First Generation College Students through the college application process. Please see the attachment for more info, and a QR code to register. This is a FAMILY event, so both students and their families are invited...and there will be breakfast available! Hope to see you Saturday, September 23. Greater Egg Day at Stockton Flyer Link - https://drive.google.com/file/d/13iO1qdfjlJ-oS22csrWmTBCxqG14jUgR/view?usp=sharing
