Voyager Express Newsletter - November 9, 2018
On November 14th, 2018, the FCC will be voting on a rule change that would put the funding of Public, Education and Government Local Access channels at the cable operators’ discretion. This change would cut or eliminate funding for EDTV Programs in the Plymouth Community. We need your help to voice and share the importance of Local Access channels such as Plymouth EDTV and the impact they have on our communities.
Please watch the video and visit bitly.com/FCCfilings to submit your comment via a brief form. We truly appreciate your support and efforts. #SaveEDTV
Thank you to our brave service men and women!

A great fall week at PECC
This week the preschoolers were able to go to the PCIS library where they listened to stories and participated in songs and fingerplays. Students have been learning about Fall this week. Miss Jamie’s class went on a hunt for Fall leaves on the playground. Miss Kim’s class hid leaves in their sensory bin and had fun with blow painting on Fall leaf cutouts.

Using technology to collaborate with students across the United States
Students in Mrs. Fitzgerald's 4th grade classroom are using Flipgrid to collaborate with mystery classrooms across the United States. First, students researched information about their region using Google Classroom, child-safe search engines and WorldBookOnline.com. Students then created and posted videos explaining the climate, agriculture, natural resources, landforms, and landmarks of the Northeast Region. The mystery classrooms then tried to determine our location by replying with evidence to support their claim.
Next week, students in the mystery locations will post information about their regions for our students to research. Students had so much fun creating, communicating, and collaborating with an authentic global audience.
