March 5

Hi everyone!  Sorry no blog yesterday...I was home taking care of my sick son.  He had a little snuffy cold, but is feeling much better now.

Just a note, book orders are due on Friday.  Our ordering code is L6VB8.  There are many incentives to ordering on-line.

The iPads are a big hit so far.  We developed some guidelines for their use.  At this time, the apps being used are not connected to the district wireless network.  If we were to use the wireless network in the future, be assured that there are strict filters on any internet searches.  According to the district Acceptable Use Policy,
"In accordance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), the District will use technology protection measures on the network to block or filter, to the extent practicable, access to visual depictions that are obscene, pornographic and/or harmful to minors."

News from the students:
"It was nice when Aoife played Caterpillar Fill and Add with me when nobody else would." Savannah
"I liked playing the math game with Savannah because she didn't make a big deal out of it when I won." Aoife
"Colin helped me out a little during math when I was stuck." Seth
"I'm glad Della came back." Grace
"Sami helped me with the iPad when I had a question." Evan
"I enjoyed playing Caterpillar Fill and Add with Hayden." William
Ava, Grace, Cole, and others enjoyed our science time today.  We talked about how thermometers work (moving molecules) and experimented with temperatures.  Our own hands heated up the temperature gauge!
