She Died!

Poor Miss Floyd! In our discussion of historical fiction during one of our genrefication mini-lessons, we took a little trip back in time and played an online version of the original Oregon Trail.  Fifth grade teachers were on the wagon team going west. First, Mrs. Reid contracted measles. Then, Miss Floyd got sick with typhoid. As supplies ran down and water quality got worse and worse, everyone suffered. Just as Miss Floyd came to pick up her class, her virtual self died. We will mourn her passing, and so will she. ;0)

New Wireless Network

There is a new wireless network in the school system for personal devices.  Stop by the library for assistance in logging in, schedule Mrs. Perisino to come to your class and assist with BYOD, or read through the resources put out by the system technology department to help with the transistion.


No time or way to make it to the public library for books?  How about a new selection of fun books to read on your computer, laptop, tablet, gaming system or smart phone?  Check out the eBooks page on the right or visit these amazing summer resources below to find something new to read.  MRS.
