2014: Year of the vapid

in
Arrington, Briana.jpg

I’m of the opinion that society today has about as much depth as a kiddie pool. This year, so far, has been proving me right. 2014: Year of the Vapid.
For those of you who don’t know the word “vapid” means shallow. According to the Google online dictionary vapid is an adjective that offers “nothing that is stimulating or challenging.” Synonyms for vapid include insipid, uninspired, colorless, uninteresting, feeble, flat, dull, boring, tedious, tired, unexciting, uninspiring, unimaginative, lifeless, tame, vacuous, bland or trite.

Our new year is rolling right along and it’s already February! January was filled to the brim with winter activities. Our three and four year olds enjoyed a fun filled trip to our wonderful library where we were read books about snowmen. It was great fun to make our own snowman to take home with us.
Our discovery centers are filled with winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves. Our children have loved dressing in winter attire and having their pictures made for their take home diaries. The ice and “snow” in our water and sand tables was a really big hit.

GHS students enjoy science projects, fair

FAIR ashley Outley C.jpg

Summer Banuelos is already looking forward to Grambling Laboratory High School’s next science fair.
“I just want to do another human behavior project because I find it very interesting,” said the 14-year-old native of Hope, Ark.
She decided to find out if childproof containers are really childproof, and the results she acquired through several tests were surprising. “I found out that childproof containers are only child proof until a child reaches a certain age of comprehension,” said Banuelos, a freshman. “At some point in time, they mimic the actions of those around them.”
