Mr. Johnson's 7th & 8th Grade science got to learn about testing for acids and bases in solutions with litmus paper of different ranges of pH sensitivity. As students got to see, litmus paper can turn a variety of different colors based on the concentration of acidity or alkalinity. Fun lab for the students!

This morning the GEMS woodshop was in for a special treat. The grant money received from the Grangeville Community Foundation was spent on supplies from Grangeville Builders. At 8:30 this morning, a Foundation member showed up at the same time the Builders were delivering the supplies, so we got to show first hand how the money was spent. The shop received everything from paints and stains to new tools. A huge "Thank You" to the Grangeville Community Foundation and Grangeville Builders Supply. And a special thanks to Lorie Palmer of the Idaho County Free Press for attending and getting photos.
