Learning Commons

The Learning Commons has a theme this year if you haven't heard or seen--Harry Potter!  Many activities, bulletin boards, decorations, contests will center around this theme.  If you haven't read the series, this is a GREAT time to start them in honor of the 20th anniversary of the release of the first book (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) in the United States.

Students have been "sorted" into houses by the ELA class and are competing all year long to be the winning house.  They can earn points by doing what they are supposed to be doing in the learning commons as well as participating in monthly challenges.
