In past Fourth Grade Environmental Days, one would be able to find high school and elementary school students working together at a Felton area farm, learning about the world around them. One group would be sitting in an area learning about reptiles, while another group would be staring at a teacher in wonderment as she presents some amazing creature.
This year, the event, put on by senior high students with the help of teachers, was held inside due to weather. But in no way did that get in the way of the students who were determined to educate our much smaller friends.

Spring fever. Two words, meaning: a feeling of restlessness and excitement felt at the beginning of spring.
As the warm weather approaches, people start becoming more energized, upbeat, and have been known to have increased libido, this is, Spring fever. Spring fever, is not a scientific diagnosis, and researchers are only beginning to understand why and how the changing of seasons alter our behaviors.

Back from the bliss of Christmas break, the harsh realities of January began to settle in for many Red Lion Senior High students.
The stressors of studying for midterms and the beginning of a new semester, however, have nothing on the daunting task that faces many Honors and AP science students: the Science Fair.
The project, often assigned within the very first few weeks of the school year, had a due date that lurked closer and closer. Despite this, many students procrastinated and didn’t finish the projects in weeks or even days leading up to the project.

While he may be new to Red Lion High School, Mr. Randy Hoffman is not a new teacher. Before coming on board with Red Lion, he had already been teaching for 33 years at Camp Hill High School.
Prior to those 33 years, Mr. Hoffman obtained his degree in chemistry from Arizona State University in 1980, then went on to get his Master’s degree in education from Millersville. He currently teaches CP chemistry and physics at the high school.
He was inspired to teach after being accepted to dental school. After his acceptance, he began to think about the big picture and his effect on the world.

As the 2016-2017 school year starts, new faces have been added onto the staff. One teacher who was added is former Dover School District physics teacher, Tatyana Simmers. She moved to the states 20 years ago from Russia.
Dr. Simmers started her career as a medical doctor, and then made the decision to become an educator, based on her family history. Dr. Simmers’ grandmother was a biology teacher, and her mother was a physics professor.

Red Lion is one of very few schools in the entire nation to have an electron microscope in their possession.
The school has owned the electron microscope for over 10 years thanks to the generosity of Mr. Ken Converse who had five children who attended the school in the district. Converse owns a company that provides electron microscope maintenance throughout the East Coast. Converse offered to give the electron microscope to the high school.
Ms. Heather Fogell, Red Lion high school science teacher, was one of the teachers who was eager to grasp this once in a lifetime opportunity. Fogell is one of the most knowledgeable about the electron microscope and she uses it often for closer examination of everyday products, insect eyes, fibers, and leaves.
