Martin Luther King Day Celebration:On Tuesday, January 20th, we held our monthly All-School Meeting.Besides the typical business (announcing Students of the Month, recognizing students who have their writing on display, etc), we also watched technology presentations developed by our students, including a special video developed by Mrs. Audley’s class on fairness in honor of Martin Luther King Day (To see the video, you can go to Mrs. Audley’s website). During the meeting, students were also introduced to books that were nominated to receive the Bartlett Book Award this year.You may want to discuss the meeting with your child.
