Tech News

Tech News Our first Kindle e-book reader was presented at the start of the District Technology Committee meeting to Jackie Smith, an avid reader from our Stacey Jr/Sr High School on May 2nd, 2011. Janie Pickett, our Media Center librarian/facilitator, has worked tirelessly to get the Kindle e-book readers operational and loaded with both audio books and e-books. Most of the Kindle e-book readers and electronic media (ebooks and audio books) were purchased through our local Teacher Technology Grants. Some of the Kindle e-book readers will be available through the Media Center for student (maybe even staff) check out. Please check with our Media Center staff for details about using a Kindle e-book reader. A few Kindle e-book readers will be used by Donnis Todd and Brian Knobloch to support their campus reading programs. Mr. McDowell, Director of Technology, states, “This project is worth the efforts and investment if it helps more of our students become better readers. The overall goal of our Kindle e-book initiative is to encourage students to read.�

Mercado Masks

Page 7 of 12 May 6, 2011

MARVELOUS MASKS 6th grade students have been learning about the Huichol Indians and the beautiful masks they make. The Huichol Indians live in the remote mountains of Nayarit and Jalisco, Mexico where they were untouched by the Spanish invaders. Each Huichol mask, in addition to being a beautiful work of art, has its own historical and spiritual significance because the patterns reflect designs and images sacred to their study of the universe where religion, life, and art are combined. These beautiful, one-of-a-kind beaded masks are made by pressing tiny glass beads into natural beeswax which is first spread over a wooden form. Each week students worked on meticulously placing beads onto templates which were later fused together with heat. These mini masks are examples of the original masks. Look for these at Mercado!!!

Good Information

The Most Anticipated Moment The most anticipated moment for a parent is the sound of a child’s first words. But what if the words are delayed, jumbled, or never come at all? Speech and language problems can affect early learning and self-esteem. Give your child a chance by seeking proper treatment from a speech-language pathologist.

PTSO NEEDS YOU!!!
