Mr. Dodson and his World History classes are visiting the Media Center this week to work on creating 3d Byzantine cathedrals.  After studying Byzantine history and viewing cathedrals from the time period, students use a 3d website to create their own designs. Soon they will use 3d printers to print their cathedrals!

The Media Center has book talks on the first Wednesday of each month. The program is called 5 in 5 at 7:25. It consists of five fast presentations for students to listen to about five books from a variety of genres. It happens in the Media Center at 7:25 a.m. before school starts. You will be on your way to class at 7:30 a.m. with new ideas about good books to read. Join us!
