Calling All Gamers: Mario and Luigi Are Ready To Rumble!

Did you know that some universities have intercollegiate gaming teams? These ESport teams have varsity status and award scholarships to the most talented recruits. Robert Morris University in Chicago started the movement at the national level and Stockton University is now leading the region in ESports (link to article here): http://www.snjtoday.com/story/40065828/stockton-debuts-esports-facility-teams-compete-in-multiple-games

ELL students in Mrs. McGowan's ELL English classes took a field trip to the EHT branch of the Atlantic County Library. Students met librarian, Ms. Rahn, and learned about free services that are available to them and to their families. Ms. Rahn told the students about a number of special programs that will be coming to the library this Spring/Summer, about an opportunity for a paid internship, and about opportunities for them to volunteer at the library.
