A message from Ms. Alafnan:
In Biology today we did a DNA extraction lab , where we extracted DNA from a strawberry. We got to discuss why scientist extract DNA from all sorts of organisms and the important role it plays in studying the genetic cause of dieases, forensic science, determining paternity and even how it is essential for improving crops so theat they are more resistant to disease.
Way to go Eagles! 👏👏👏

Hancock boy’s soccer team had an amazing weekend! After a shaky start to the season, we bounced back in the PepsiCo tournament. Down 5 players because of contact-tracing, we won Saturday 3-0 without a goalie on the roster (a field player stepped in). On Sunday, the game was tied after regulation and went to penalties and the same field player (Joe Sanchez) stopped two penalty kicks and we scored 4 of 5 shots to win it with a very exciting penalty kick by Mateo Moreno. We will play in the finals on Sunday in Schaumburg. More information soon.

Highlights: Miguel Rendon-Bedolla (2 goals), Omar Garcia (1 goal) & Mateo Moreno (1 goal during reg. time & scored the winning goal & penalty kick). Shout-out to the unstoppable goalie tandem, Gael Gomez-Velazco & Joe Sánchez!

We see you, Eagles! #cpshancock
