What's Going on in the PDC?

This week we have had lots of activity in the PDC. Ms. Getsinger and her students used Onslow View to connect with a 2nd grade class at Parkwood Elementary. The students are do a collaborative project on different countries. The end goal is to create a book that provides information on the countries, Great job Ms. Getsinger!!! Way to make real world connections.

Also, Mr. Cole is teaching social studies to all 7th graders in the PDC. He has roughly 55 students each period engaged and using their laptops. Mr. Cole wanted to ensure that all 7th graders were being taught the curriculum. He wanted to combine the classes! Thank you for looking out for our students. Feel free to stop by and see him in action!
