Digital Learning Day March 13

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is
success.” –Ben Franklin

DLD is built around conversation that focuses on the year long commitment we make to strengthen and extend learning for students via technology. What technology do you use to find answers, collaborate, raise awareness and create new knowledge? Join the conversation and make time on Friday to explore a digital resource, a program or an app that you feel will enhance your learning and student learning. New to Zite, Snappy Words, Twitter, Pinterest? Explore. Learn something new. Share. We’re all in this together. #DLDay

World Read Aloud Day March 4

catieAHS book club members took turns reading aloud to Mrs. Schleider’s and Ms. Zindel’s classes in honor of #WRAD15. Celebrated annually on the first Wednesday in March each year, the day invites readers around the world to unite through books. Our kids, big and small, enjoyed the words of Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Catepillar and Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs in Ham, making this a special day for reading!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

What does Twain, Chbosky, Angelou & Ginsberg have in common with Dr. Seuss?
All are catalysts for reading, of course!
Works by these authors were among those read aloud by students and staff in celebration of Read Across America day. Thanks to all who made this day a success, inspiring us with what to read next.
