Leap Year By: Tyler Marteney

Leap year is a wonderful time that gives us an extra day of the year, but there’s one small problem. Many people don’t know why it happens. Despite the seemingly impossible gain of time, the real reason it happens is very simple. Each day isn’t twenty-four hours, but actually slightly longer, being twenty-four hours and four minutes. Over time, the minutes add up into hours, then eventually a whole day. Obviously, it takes a long time for the time to add up, being four years, but eventually we end up with the twenty-ninth day of February. Happy Leap Year! 

February was Fun Filled!

Bear Branch Junior High was busy all over campus having fun filled learning experiences.
