  • Sled Races

    Some Central Cass students were learning about dog sledding and read Gary Paulsen's book "Dogteam" this week. They talked about some figurative language and social thinking by looking at the dogs and deciding how they felt to be running. To add to their lesson students took turns pretending to be sled dogs quietly running through the night. Since it was "dark," the "dogs" were blindfolded and had to listen for directions from the drivers..."Mush, whoa, left, or right." The students were engaging their speech, auditory processing, and other sensory systems to make this work during this creative activity.

  • Making Jerky in Foundations of Ag

    Students in the Foundations of Ag class participated in making jerky as part of their Meats Unit. In their Meats Unit, they studied about factors that influence food consumption, the conversion of muscle to meat, the slaughter process, USDA grading, wholesale and retail cuts of beef, pork and lamb and how to cook a great steak! Earlier this year they took a trip up to Casselton Cold Storage to learn about the slaughter process and to help them identify where on the animal the particular cuts of meat come from. They wrapped up the unit by choosing their own jerky recipe, mixing it together and allowing it to marinade and then dehydrated it.

  • Stem Center Renderings

    Architects, STEM Consultants, administration and teachers have been busy collaborating ideas on what our new STEM center will look like at Central Cass. The state of the art design will encompass Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through fun, hands-on experiences where real learning occurs. Click the header for a link to look at a rendering of what our STEM center has the potential to look like. Note; furniture and details will change, but the walls and floor plan will likely stay the same with minor tweaking. To move the screen to look around, click and drag the screen. Pictured is Mr. Forness looking through 3D Binoculars at the rendering presented by Zerr Berg Architects. We have several sets of the binoculars in the main office if you want to see it for yourself in 3D.

Thank you to the Rural Cass Ambulance Team for helping our faculty and staff with this process.
