Remember the single sign-on id/password is: middle/timecat. Have fun watching!
A Word from Bill
"You may have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There's another day you might want to know about: Giving Tuesday. The idea is pretty straightforward. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, shoppers take a break from their gift-buying and donate what they can to charity."
In September, 2015 a new speed record for a human-powered vehicle was set. What was this record in miles per hour? The winner gets an Uncle Milton's Moon in My Room wall clock.
Question: Find the world flag. Answer: Unfortunately there is no universal agreement on the flag of the world. Many of you played and sent in various versions of this flag. The first person to respond was Peter Clarke! Yes, teachers can play too. Pictured above is the one I like best.
