Middle School Dance - May 2 
Student Voice will be hosting another dance on Friday, May 2! Mr. Tuttle will send out a Google Form soon to ask for student feedback on whether or not you want to have a themed-dance. Last semester's dance was a huge success, so thanks to Student Voice for organizing another dance for the middle school. More details to come...

Celebration of the World Donations
One of the best aspects of Celebration of the World is the chance to miss the amazing baskets that are raffled off.  Those baskets are only possible by donations from Graded families.  While anyone can certainly make a donation from any grade, we are going to have the following grades represented by the following themes:

6th- Nerf Basket

For Today: Visible Thinking Routines Blogging
We were fortunate to have Jason Ohler, a world-renowned lecturer and author of the book Digital Community, Digital Citizen, For our children will it be two lives or one?visit the middle school during our Assembly on Monday. Jason discussed the key elements of storytelling and building digital pieces that creatively tell our stories. Please use the following presentation from Ms. Tolisano. We would like to have all students reflect on Jason Ohler's presentation by using one of the visible thinking routines. Please choose one of the routines to use and blog about Jason's presentation yesterday.
