Forest Grove Students See the Miami Heat

Forest Grove Students See the Miami Heat

 

Sixty Forest Grove students got the experience of a lifetime on March 17 when they got to see the Miami Heat play at the American Airlines Arena.   After the game, students were able to go on the court and take a shot from the free throw line just like the players do!  This elite group of Bulldogs were nominated by their teachers for doing well in school academically and behaviorally.  Students also won a spot on the trip through PBIS events.   All of these well-deserving students will write about their experience at the game to share with the rest of the Bulldog family.

Drafting / Illustrative Design

Drafting / Illustrative Design

Drafting is the act of composing plans that visually communicate how something functions or is to be constructed.  Also known as “technical drawing,” it is essential in industry and engineering for communicating ideas using common symbols, perspectives, units of measure, and page layout.   This type of drawing is extremely precise vs. the forms of expressive drawing known as “visual arts.” Individuals who choose a career in Drafting and Illustrative Design work in construction, architecture, and engineering.  (Lincoln Park Academy, Port St. Lucie High School)
