With funds from the Floyd Buhr Memorial, the Adrian Optimist Club awarded four Adrian High School students with scholarships to be used this school year for dual credit college classes from Central Methodist University and the University of Missouri - Kansas City.
Dual credit classes provide a great opportunity for students to earn both high school and college credits. Adrian R-III offers 16 dual credit classes this year. Classes cost about $75.00 per credit hour.
Students across the country participated in the Hour of Code, a self-guided activity that teaches the basics of computer science including Adrian R-III students, grades K-12. They practiced the basics of computer programming, learned computer languages, wrote programs and created websites.
