Two Excellent Events!!

Two excellent events today…

“Google Expeditions” visited Pine Tree Hill Elementary.  This program allows students to go on virtual field trips all over the world.  I watched a group looking at the bottom of the ocean and another group visiting the Galapagos Islands.  This was very cool!  Pine Tree Hill was one of a small group of schools in South Carolina chosen for a “Google Expeditions visit.

Today was also “Leadership Day” at Jackson School.  At this event, visitors from throughout the region learned about “The Leader in Me” program that has been very successfully implemented at Jackson.  I was extremely proud of how the students interacted with the visitors and took ownership for the program.
