Welcome Glynis Johns!

We are extremely happy that Glynis Johns was able to come and speak to our 5th grade students about the accomplishments and achievements of African Americans in the City of Scranton. You may know Glynis from her Black Scranton project. Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend!

Free Thermometers!

Exciting news! ­ We’ve unlocked a new thermometer order window for families that missed the October deadline! Encourage your parent friends to join our FLUency school group today so we can all stay in the loop about illness! Kinsa will distribute more thermometers until they run out.
● Text ‘fluency’ to 555888. ● Download the Kinsa app and follow the instructions on your screen to join your FLUency school group. ● You will receive a confirmation email as soon as your thermometer order has gone through. Please spread the word to families in your classroom ASAP!

Full STEM Ahead....
