Mark Cox from Life Touch Photography began with a short presentation of a spring program for photos. This program will not replace the fall photos, but will give parents another choice for photos. Life Touch donates $1.00 to the school for each student photographed in the spring program. Dates available are April 5, 6, 16 and 23.

Sheila Kent gave ASCL a demonstration of the Mimio Bar in her classroom. This tool transforms a white board into a ‘smart board’. She reports that the students really enjoy working with the tool, and she is looking forward to creating her own programs to suit her needs.
