Do you go black Friday shopping?  If you do, it is a perfect opportunity to buy new toys to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.  A new toy might be something small you take for granted, but to a healing child, it can make a world of difference.   Often times it is hard for kids just like you to stay optimistic about the difficult situation they are going through.  A new toy will distract them from their pain and hardship, by giving them something positive to focus on.  Your chance to make a healing child smile is ending November 30th so go out there and get some toys!  Bring the new toys to your science class and place them in the box labeled toy drive.  If your teachers class brings the most toys you will win the prize of cupcakes!

This is important iPad information:

  1. ·         IPads were set to load the iOS10 update this past weekend. You may notice that you no longer  “swipe” the iPad to open it up, but you press the home button instead. This means that the iOS10 has been installed on your iPad.
  2. ·         If the iPad is still loading iOS10 you just need to wait until it completes.
  3. ·         If the IOS10 did not load at all please bring your iPad to the Library to Mrs. Peters and we will load it here.
