Eighth grade social studies students at PJHS got the unique experience of conducting an archaeological site survey. Susan Knisley, Hopewell Culture National Historical Park's Education Technician, conducted the "dig" and students collected artifacts from the assigned area. This is the first phase in the Human Rights Garden Project, which should be completed in May, 2017. Now that the ground has been broken, Mrs. Deacon's art classes will begin designing three large bronze statues and several paving stones for the garden. They will be assisted by artists Kevin Lyles and Bryan Thomas, and will collaborate with Rio Grande University and educators from the Franklin Park Conservatory before the project's conclusion. Mr. Hopkins' eighth grade students will travel to the Hopewell Culture National Historical Park to further investigate their findings! Stay tuned as this project unfolds.
