Who's Audrey?

NP3 Middle would like to welcome the newest addition, Cart 1 (The Hunt likes to think of her as Audrey). Cart 1 houses 36 laptops, graciously prepped by Sharon Maccini and Nancy Kidd. The cart has been used all week by social studies teachers to prep students on the upcoming SBAC. Everything seems to be running smoothly and as planned! We can't wait to enhance instruction with the laptops next year!


Hooray for laptops! Go technology! Ideas are welcome!

Fun in Math and P.E.!

Activate Prior Knowledge! How does the video ensure participation from everyone?
