Recent Presentations & Events
Students recently had the opportunity to attend a permit trivia program to prepare for their permit driver tests. In addition, 7th and 8th grade iJag students attended a presentation on Deepfakes, which are continually a media issue.
Mrs. James's class also attended a Book Tasting in the library, which allowed them to read and "taste" different genres of books. Always a good idea to test a book before diving right in!
