The Black River High School Freshman Engineering Team attended the Goodyear STEM Career Day this past Saturday at the University of Akron and participated in the engineering competition. They had to build a Rube Goldberg machine that would fill a 33" toy blimp as the final step; and, after over 120 student hours of work, their entry won first place. The team of (from left to right) Alison Daly, Mary Ellen Lafferty, Brittney Hahn, Michael Aikman, Katie Skala, Justin Zacharyasz, William Warner, Jacob Flack, and Ian Schie (team member Ben Artrip is not pictured) got to display their machine in front of over 2000 students and more than 200 schools, and demonstrated it in an exclusive session
with Rich Kramer, the CEO of Goodyear. The team won a $4000 grant for the school, they will get to shadow Goodyear engineers for a day and have engineers talk to students at BRHS, and they get to put their machine on display at Goodyear headquarters

Beginning in February many of our students will be taking the PARCC Tests. These tests are replacing the Achievement Tests and Ohio Graduation Tests. Please go to the link and try your luck at the tests. Since students will be taking these tests we want parents to understand the test format, what will be graded and how it is graded. We will try to add different links below.
Please review the testing schedule for the district. This will effect all of our students in grades 2nd through 12th grade. If at all possible please make sure your child is aware of the dates, and if possible keep interruptions like Doctors visits and abscences to a minimum or scheduled outside of school hours.
