PBJHS - Tuesday 4/24/12

Awesome news from last week:

PBJHS students: Peyton Bradley, Austin Grable, Isaiah Williams, Jacob Wethington, Jansen Gilmore & Benji Becker all took the plunge & shaved their heads last week in honor of Scott McClintock. Each student was inspired by Scott's recent speech at their youth group titled, "we are not guaranteed tomorrow." Great job guys, & way to be leaders by showing your support & commitment to helping others. You are all an inspiration!

Tech Tuesday thoughts...
We recently purchased 10 webcams for teachers to use in their classrooms. We are interested in having a couple short webcam "learning sessions" after school before the end of the school year. If you are interested in participating, please contact Dr. Tarte.
