Today is a working class in Emergency Preparedness

Our classes will spend the period outside, preparing for Hurricane Matthew. 

The benefit: Students who choose to participate and ACTIVELY work hard with minimal prompting will have their effort and teamwork take the place of the nine-week project.

Students who choose not to participate can stand on the fenceline and complete the nine-week project in lieu of working.

Absent students must complete the nine-week project or present me with a copy of their family emergency preparedness plan with the highlights of what their responsibilities are during  an emergency

While we move our garden into a safer location and make sure the area is safe, we will discuss the following topics:

Why and how hurricanes form.
How a hurricane grows in strength and size
Weather patterns and why hurricanes stall, or change paths

El Nino
Computer models and why we look at more than one.
Signs that the weather is shifting (Pressure)
Hurricane preparedness
How to assess your home for hurricane readiness
When it's time to decide to seek other shelter

Storm Surge


What to do with pets during a storm
Helping others and why we engage in these activities.
