In celebration of National Engineers Week, students in Ms. Rabolt’s Gateway to Technology classes had professional engineers visit. These engineers described what the field of engineering is, what their specific jobs are, and gave real-life examples of projects they have worked on right here in Bloomington-Normal. Thank you to Farnsworth Group, Inc. for sending their professionals! It was a great experience!

Bowl for Kids' Sake
Thank you to all the parents who have sent in donations for the Teacher Wish List.
Our current need is for the Giant sized Post it notes. They are almost post sized and can be found at Sam’s and Office Max.
