Mrs. Meinholz's #VanguardPride Personal Finance students are learning about what a credit score is and how to build a great credit score. As a part of the unit, they played a board game where as they landed on different squares, they had to track how their credit score would change. Sometimes they lost points for missing their student loan payments or maxing credit lines or earned points for paying off their credit card balance in full or making mortgage payments on time. These are definitely some great skills to learn!

Students in Mrs. Johnson's 6th grade Science class have been learning about cells and bacteria. They were able to compare the bacteria in yogurt, Yoplait plain yogurt and Greek yogurt. Students were able to see the active bacteria in each sample under the microscope. What a wonderful #VanguardPride lab experience for the students!
