Wonder Movie Field Trip

Fun and happy times after reading the Wonder book! We took a field trip to AMC Cumberland to see the Wonder Movie! A BIG thank you to the students who participated, CCSD Director of Instruction & Innovative Practice, Melissa Morse, and Mr. Gillihan, for supporting this initiative.

It’s a Marshmallow World in the Learning Commons

On Friday, December 8, 2017, we had beautiful snowflakes fall outside the learning commons windows. I decided to record it, and Marshmallow World came on Mood Media. Perfect timing! The students were fascinated by the snow, and I thought it would be great to record it to watch any time we would like!
