7th-grade Humanities class has been learning about Africa where students were divided into groups to read a novel about Africa. Each Novel focused on an African teenager in different regions of Africa. The stories included some modern day issues in Africa including: AIDS, child soldiers, and struggles for water.

Then, students designed over 900 crafts to be sold at the Tri-Kappa Christmas Boutique. Over 30 students partnered with Tri Kappa members and helped run the Christmas Boutique. Tri Kappa donated $500 for our students to put towards an initiative in Africa to make a difference in one of the regions studied. The classes voted to donate the money to help build in a well in the drier areas of Africa!

DeKalb Middle School eighth-graders Thursday learned from industry specialists how raw materials are turned into products that are built to last.

Engineers from Steel Dynamics Inc., Vulcraft, Rieke Corp., Nucor, AZZ Galvanizing, Cooper, Stark Trusses, Trine University and Metal Technologies visited the school to help students with their “Built to Last” projects.

Teacher Amy Norton explained DeKalb County is an area that works with all types of raw materials in the manufacturing process. Students are studying raw materials to determine how products are built to last, Norton said.

The engineers helped students study the chemical and physical properties of raw materials. Students also visited the DeKalb County Fairgrounds, where they observed a steel bridge, fences, building walls, railings and other items that are built to last Norton said.
