Thanks!
---------
Thanks to everyone for their generous support at the Fun Run this year.  Our classroom has 
received the mac laptop from the proceeds of the Fun Run  We are now able to project on 
our Apple TV and use several functions that will enhance the technology in the classroom.  
This is definitely a great donation for us!

Upcoming Field Trip

We will be going to the San Jose Tech Museum on April 21st.  This field trip is an all day 
event in which we will be visiting the hands-on exhibits and watching the IMAX movie, 
Forces of Nature.  We will need drivers/chaperones for this trip.  Please mark your 
calendars if you are available to drive.  I will be sending permission slips out after spring 
break.
