Happy New Year! - Plus five weeks

Been too long between posts. There are so many things to blog about and so little time to get to blog about them.

Freshman "Ning" pages: Freshman english with Mr. Rapier are in the midst of a grand project where the students and teacher are putting assignments on a writer's social network page called "Ning". Students are encouraged to get parents and friends to check their pages out and what they have commented on and what their thoughts were.

D.C. Trip: March 22-27th is coming up and I hope those of you who have students going are excited. If you don't, please don't give in to the "we're not doing anything" excuse because so many students are gone. Teachers know to keep those here doing relevant things and to try out new technology ideas and units.

PLTW - Project Lead the Way is moving forward into the new year with the addition of 1-3 new class offerings. Principals of Engineering and Civil Engineering look like courses to investigate as well as offerring Digital Electronics one way or the other. These are exciting additions to Intro to Engineering and Design, a class that we currently offer.

Those are just a few things, I'd blog more except my duty taking money at the basketball game is almost over.
