In an emotional commencement ceremony at Bancroft-Rosalie, family, friends and school staff said goodbye to the 15 members of the Class of 2016. Drawing quite a few laughs during her valedictorian speech was Hannah Flock, who shared fond memories of her classmates. The crowd also heard from salutatorian Kassidi Browning. Earning their diplomas alongside Browning and Flock were Mario Aldrich, Allysa Bonneau, Chase Bonsall, Austin . . .
During the last quarter of school, the sixth graders were busy learning about volcanoes. The students used their talents by creating Discovery Education Boards, posters and drawings of volcanoes. Then the class was split into three different groups to build their own representation of a volcano. After the volcanoes were made, the students then tested their volcanoes. The students had a fun time presenting, creating and learning . . .
More than three quarters of the student body in the junior high and senior high at Bancroft-Rosalie earned a spot on the 4th Quarter or 2nd Semester Honor Rolls or both. Following are the students who earned that status: 4th Quarter Gold Honor Roll Seniors Kassidi Browning and Hannah Flock; juniors Jacob Cole, Kylee Cole, Justice Johnson, Shannon Johnston, Tess Nottlemann and Aaron Ras; sophomores Lauren Ahlers, Kelcee . . .
One of the last lessons taught in Miss Lacey's preschool class was about plants and flowers. They learned the basic parts of a plant, planted seeds and discovered what plants need to grow. At recess, the children found “flowers” and labeled the different parts for their friends.
