BHHS Equestrian Team Competition

Reflection By Leah Kendal, 7th grade WHMS Student Ambassador

Recently, the Bloomfield Hills High School (BHHS) equestrian team went to a horseback riding competition in Armada, Michigan. Ani Winkler (pictured here), a sophomore at BHHS, is on the team. Ani has been on the team for two years, but this was her first year as a rider, because last year she was a groom.

In the competition she rode a horse named Leroy. Even though you don't need much experience to be on the equestrian team, Ani has been riding for seven years. Her favorite part of the competition was the gaming events. In these events, everyone on the team stands together to talk, joke, and have fun.

Ani placed well in her events, although the team as a whole didn't place too well. She says being on the team is a lot of fun and that everybody is supportive of one another. The team is stepping up its game next year, and Ani encourages everybody with riding experience to join the team.

BHMS Food Expo

Recently the 6th grade students at BHMS had a Food Expo, the culminating activity in their science Unit Challenge. The Unit Challenge asked students to educate their assigned characters, Carl and Mary, about digestion and help them solve their digestion problems. Throughout the unit, students have completed hands-on activities to gain experience and insight into the digestive system, constructed and used models of the digestive system, and developed arguments about appropriate food choices based on evidence and reasoning. They also learned how to optimize solutions following the Engineering Design Process and tied this to the MYP Design Cycle.
