A fire at Atlantic Middle School in August displaced 350 students. The sixth- and seventh-graders are housed in the Cass County Educational Opportunity Center, but 125 eighth-graders have been snuggled into the high school. The art room has been transformed into a history classroom; the media center is now subdivided into four classrooms, with bookshelves standing in as makeshift walls.

Take a look at eighth-grade students and teachers making the best of a less-than-ideal situation.
