Due to a fire at Atlantic Middle School in August, eighth-grade students have been housed in the high school.
Side-conversations often get brought up in class, and Mr. McDermott is known for his stories during lessons. When his physics-defying “Honda-Davidson” moped is brought up, eighth graders may become confused or jealous. “My Honda-Davidson goes 19 miles-per-hour down 10th Street hill, and goes 21 up it.”
Eighth grade is when students start to become of legal age to ride mopeds, so the stories of the “Honda-Davidson” are highly relevant.
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.
