Accelerated Reader News

If you need a new reading log, pick one up in the library or in the Language Arts Lab.

Final STAR tests are scheduled for May.

If there is a book you want to read that is not in the library, start making suggestions for Mrs. M's summer order. Happy reading!

Have you tried Powtoon yet?

The Health classes at Abbott have used Powtoon animation to make lively and informative presentations about substance abuse. Mr. Pepe's and Mr. Hanna's classes made movies about the hazards of steroids. Mr. Wethered and Mr. Nadeau's classes are learning the dangers of different drugs. If you look, you may find some of student work published on YouTube. Here is a link to a demo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vgWwbbkCg8&rel=0
