Students enjoyed local law enforcement making the material from Senior Math Finance come to life yesterday, March 21, at Fannin County High School. State trooper Andrew Phillips shared a power point and discussed how traffic reconstruction officers use mathematics to verify speeds, skidding distances and other relevant facts needed to reconstruct traffic accidents. The students then went to the visitors parking lot behind the football stadium to experience a reenactment of an emergency braking situation. They then used some of the formulas discussed in the classroom to determine the speed of the vehicle upon braking.
Thanks go to School Resource office Darvin Couch, along with State Patrol officers Andrew Phillips, Scott Stanley, and Aaron Church.
Senior Math Finance students at Fannin County High School enjoyed learning more about the real world of finance on February 12. Cory Callihan, assistant Vice-President and loan officer at United Community Bank gave an enlightening talk to students about everything ranging from purchasing a vehicle or home to how credit ratings have an effect on your life.

Our “STEM Upcycling” winners in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade were rewarded Tuesday, May 16th with their Unicorn Spit Party from Kitty Ray, owner of 3 Monkeys Antique Mall and Paint Studio in downtown Blue Ridge. The students really enjoyed using this awesome paint.
