Mrs. Szafranski's Class

Presidents' Week: February 15-19

We're Going on a Study Trip!

Our class will be traveling to the Learning Curve at the Central Library in Indianapolis on Thursday, March 10. The Learning Curve offers a unique blend of digital and traditional programming for students. Interactive activities are aligned with academic standards and incorporate a variety of technology, books, and materials to ensure a dynamic, hands-on learning experience.

**All chaperones must ride the bus and have an updated background check on file with the office.

  • ThingLink
  • Xtra Math (this is actually a website - xtramath.org, but can be saved to the tablet's home screen for easy access in the future)
  • Show Me
  • Qrafter
