Greetings!

Students and Parents,

I was given the privilege this past weekend to attend and speak at a conference out in San Francisco, California.

If you don't know where that is, here's a map...


I learned some great new approaches to using technology in the classroom, and also some fun new websites that I can't wait to share with you all (For example, check out "Wonderopolis")

I should've been back by today, but my connecting flight through Dallas, Texas got cancelled due to bad weather!

Boo.
---------------------------

On the plus side, in between days at the conference I was able to make my way around the Bay Area to see the sights.  Check out some of these pictures!

Here's the Golden Gate Bridge at night...


I had a few hours one afternoon, so I went and hiked around some Redwoods.  These are some of the world's tallest and oldest trees -- some over 2000 years old!



I was so close to the Pacific Ocean, and I kept waking up at 3am (thank you, jet lag), that I figured I could swing by the coast one morning to take a look.  Note: the sand and water were VERY cold!



Flying back... check the snow underneath us!


------------------------

Lastly, I know that many of you have finished your Minecraft/Volume project (and THANK YOU so much for still getting that done on time!), but I have decided to make the final due date for the project be this Wednesday, February 25th.  With us being out all last week and having limited Internet access, I figure that is a fair time to have the finished project due.  However, please let me know if you still need additional time/help/etc. 

Thanks!
