Physics Students Learning About Newton's Laws!

Mrs. Audrey Gill's PHYSICS class members were learning about Newton's "second law" at WHS this week. For those of you not familiar with Newton's 2nd law, here 'tis:

Newton's second law of motion can be formally stated as follows: "The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object."

Showing That Patriot R*E*S*P*E*C*T!

This month at Lincoln Elementary, the young Patriots have been learning about RESPECT as part of their Character Counts curriculum. In conjunction with that theme, numerous veterans were on hand as guest speaker Sgt. Eric Page addressed the students about respect for the flag and respect for each other. The students received instruction on "saluting" as well from Sgt. Page, a gesture in the military signifying respect.
