GEMS Summer School Volcanic  Eruption
Hollen Hays is pictured here with a volcano model that he made (with some assistance) during Grangeville Elementary Middle School’s summer school session. Hays has been our resident expert about volcanoes, especially Mount St. Helens. He modeled the cardboard volcano after Mount St. Helens, and the volcano from the movie “Dante’s Peak.” He decided to call the cardboard model, “Mount Summer School.”  He worked on the cardboard model several days: he made a supply list of materials, then built the model and took two days to paint it. The first eruption was on Thursday, July 21.
