While the 8th grade class explored Washington, DC, the Rabun Gap Middle School 7th grade class traveled to Chattanooga, TN May 26-30 for a field experience that combined studies from 6th and 7th grade classes. Under the lead of Middle School Science Teacher and trip planner, Johnathan BySura, students learned history, science, geography, and team building through hands-on activities. Outings included caving at Lookout Mountain, a visit to the Tennessee Aquarium to explore marine and terrestrial exhibits, exploration of the history of the Civil War at Chickamaugua Battlefield and National Cementary, and a one-of-a-kind seventh grade activity called the "Amazing Race." The group enjoyed these learning adventures while camping in cabins at nearby Booker T. Washington State Park. The 5-day trip ended with student reflection on the importance of the past two years of learning and developing lasting relationships with peers. Mr. BySura put together a video that recaps the week and highlights the places they explored; click here to view. Note that Mr. BySura recommends waiting until the video's gray bar loads completely. If you would like a copy of the video, email Mr. BySura for details at jbysura@rabungap.org.

The Laptop Exchange is a program designed to help new and returning students who may not be able to find or afford new laptops for next year's school year. To help them out, we're asking the student body as a whole to donate their unwanted laptops. To prepare laptops for donation, REMOVE PASSWORD, delete all personal data, and bring the laptop AND CHARGER to either Mr. McGee's office or to the front desk of the Administration Building. Before donated laptops are offered to students, they will be "cleaned" by a local computer technician. Help make the Rabun Gap Laptop Exchange Program a success and donate today!
