Hi everyone!

The snow is melting!!!! Finally – I’m beginning to actually see some grass on my front lawn.

Did you know there’s a Doodle for Google contest going on? Prizes include a $15,000 college scholarship for the winning student and a $25,000 technology grant for the winning school. Registration closes on March 2nd and entries must be postmarked by March 16th. NEW!!! If your school district is not participating, you can register your own child. Take a look at the video and the link below for additional information.


Also, I came across this list that I thought you might find interesting:
