Sponsor A Family note

Hey H and M kids, its that time of year again! It is time to give back to our community and start collecting items for Sponsor a Family. You will find a little snowman to the right of this post that has a link to the kids we are buying gifts for. Find your class hour and table color and coordinate with your table what gifts you want to buy, maybe even make a chart to make sure you cover everything on the list! In addition to gifts, Meijer, Kroger and other grocery store gift cards are much needed for meals during the holidays!! We are hoping to collect all items by Monday, December 19th so we can have adequate time to fill in any gaps. We will wrap these gifts and deliver them on Thursday, December 22nd. In addition, this year we are adding Hygiene/ Toiletry baskets/boxes. We will compile boxes of detergent, soap, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, feminine hygiene products(pads, panty liners, etc) and fabric softener, in addition to any other hygiene products that could be useful to the families that they may not have access to. These we will put together on Wednesday, December 21st and delivered to the schools to be handed out to the families in need. Thank you for all your donations, lets make this year the most successful yet and show these families love! Cassie Ritter H&M Lead

PBS Act 2.3.3 Diabetes Complications


What the heck is hemoglobin A1C?

An A1C test measures the percentage of glucose-containing red blood cell molecules present in the bloodstream.
Hemoglobin is an important protein in red blood cells that’s used to transport oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. There are several types of hemoglobin, the most common of which is hemoglobin A. When glucose molecules combine with hemoglobin A in the bloodstream, the resulting molecule is called hemoglobin A1C.
The more glucose in the bloodstream over a given amount of time, the more hemoglobin A molecules become hemoglobin A1C molecules. And of course, with diabetes, you want to keep that level of glucose as normal as possible. The proportion of A1C molecules in the blood is measured by an A1C test—that’s why it’s reported as a percentage.
David B. Sacks of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital describes it: “The way hemoglobin A1C forms is that glucose in the blood goes into the red blood cell and attaches to the hemoglobin. The more glucose in the blood, the more will stick onto the hemoglobin.
“The red blood cell lives in the blood for approximately 120 days because of the long lifespan of the red blood cell. So hemoglobin is there longer, and more glucose is stuck to it—so A1C is reported as a percentage of total hemoglobin in the blood.
“An A1C of 7 means that 7 percent of the hemoglobin has glucose stuck to it.”

MI 1.4.2 Recombinant DNA


  • Could there be some kind of molecular editing system? What tools could be devised to work with genes?
  • Could scientists then create tailored DNA molecules? In the early 1970s, researchers discovered naturally-occurring enzymes that could be used to tailor-make DNA molecules.
  • The idea that DNA still "functions" when transferred from one organism to another opened up worlds of possibilities.
  • Could biomedical scientists insert the DNA sequence for human insulin into bacteria, and let the bacteria be the factory to produce unlimited quantities of insulin?
