It’s a Promethean Learning World! Some SmartBoards have been replaced with touch screen interactive “Promethean” Boards this year. Last year a pilot program began to test various boards, and slowly the classrooms are being introduced to these interactive touchscreen boards that no longer cast shadows or use a projector, and they have 180-degree visibility no matter where students sit.

Recognizing good character in students is something to be celebrated. Principal, Dr. Jim Bolen, shared, “I absolutely love this award ceremony which focuses on core values.
