No long letter to read today but a bit of a task I ask of you this week. The following is an excerpt from the latest entry in the Bridge Point Bobcat Blog:
“Fourth Graders in Ms Steimle’s and Ms. DeLuca's class shrunk a distance of over 1800 miles today as they connected with a group of students from Neply, Haiti using Skype. Our fourth graders began their study of Haitian culture from a connection with their classmate Kade, whose father has established a medical clinic in Haiti to serve the pediatric medical needs of the community….”
Stay with me, now. Just for a couple of minutes. Click the following and when finished with the entry, peruse the archives (by date, grade level and/or activity) and deepen your understanding of how technology at Bridge Point expands learning, creates connections and deepens meaning.

Now forward this link to your in-laws. They will be impressed as well!
