We have been working very intently to catch up on the time we have missed. The students have done an excellent job, and they are making great use of their time!
Today we had our STEM Showcase, and the students did an excellent job addressing their challenge. Their challenge was to imagine that they were Jackie Robinson or Martin Luther King, Jr. and get their message of inequality out using 21st century technology.
Please remember field trip forms are due by January 29th. Thank you to those of you who have already turned them in!
Mrs. Carla Teuchert
