Observing the Universe

Last Friday evening, Mr. Peck took a group of about 30 students, including members of The Major COE to the Staring Lake Observatory in Eden Prairie. The observatory is situated on a lake and has a nine foot tall, 16" telescope (one of the largest in the state). The plan had been to view the planet Mercury but due to cloud cover they were unable to do so. They did get to look at the moon and the Orion nebula. Harry Wang '17 shot a collection of beautiful photos (Including these) that we have placed in Flickr.

Good Luck @ Nationals!

ScholarShift Stories: Junk Journaling

Shattuck-St. Mary’s students created handmade books comprised of recycled and reclaimed items as part of a recent ScholarShift module, concluding on Wednesday, April 5. 

Led by weCreate Director Stephanie Vagle and Assistant to the President Jennifer Hillesheim, students began work on their journals using items such as paper from magazines, brochures, patterned paper, music sheets, greeting cards, post cards, and much more in weSolve.

These components were then packaged to create a more visually striking diary featuring graphics, memorabilia, and keepsake items. Through this medium, students were able to tell stories, recall memories, and revisit impactful events in a fresh and creative way.

School of Public Health Hosts Annual Research Day

Students in Shattuck-St. Mary’s BioScience Center of Excellence students traveled to the University of Minnesota on Wednesday, April 5 to attend the School of Public Health’s (SPH) Annual Research Day.

Presentation topics included an examination of the effects of food safety cultural norms on food inspections of Somali-owned restaurants, research into whether dentists should begin offering childhood and teenage vaccinations, and the exploration of ways to disrupt the pathway between racism and adverse birth outcomes. The event allows both the public and the university community to learn more about the research being conducted by SPH faculty and students.

Because the research conducted in public health has tangible outcomes and can easily be connected to real life, this research day is a favorite of SSM BioScience COE students. Those students will present their own research work during a final BioScience Symposium on Monday, April 24.

The Great Egg Match-Up
Members of the Girls Soccer COE devoted time after school on Tuesday to match up recycled eggs from last year's Egg Hunt. This is tedious work! With 13,000+ eggs to stuff each year, we rely on having the majority of eggs recycled from year to year. Thanks to our helpful volunteers and coaches too!
U18 Boys Soccer Has a "Tough" Friendly
The U18 Boys Soccer team faced Minneapolis City Soccer Club (Mpls City SC) last Saturday. The game was a "friendly" and didn't count in terms of the U.S. Soccer DA standings. However, it was a tightly contested game with the Sabres facing and older and more physically imposing team. The Mpls City SC features some of Minnesota's best amateur players. The Sabres fought hard and the final score was 3-2 in favor of Mpls City.
Weekend of Music

Highlighted by a visit from the Bemidji Choir and voice lessons from Dr. Wendy-Zaro-Mullins, associate professor of voice at the University of Minnesota, members of the SSM Vocal Performance Program Center of Excellence enjoyed a weekend of music on March 31 and April 1.

On Friday, the Bemidji Choir visited SSM as part of their tour of southern Minnesota. The group performed during a morning session in the Chapel for VPP and community members, and Bemidji Choir Director Dr. Dwight Jilek worked with SSM singers on one of their choral songs. Later that afternoon, VPP students were joined by Dr. Zaro-Mullins, who led a class in the Music Suite.

Dr. Zaro-Mullins was also the featured guest for Vocal Day 2017 on Saturday, April 1. Members of VPP were joined by area vocalists for a fantastic day of music and learning, which included mini-voice lessons, master classes, and help sessions taught by Dr. Zaro-Mullins and Dr. Jennifer Olson, a pop-up choir performance helmed by VPP Director Peter Schleif, and a comprehensive closing recital in the Newhall Auditorium.
