The Bobcat Globe: 8th Grade Students Cover the Festival of Learning

Click here to check out the student newspaper, The Bobcat Globe, written and published by our 8th grade students this week, covering the 2012 Festival of Learning theme of Endangered Species. Thanks to faculty editors, Todd Gilbert and David Carpenter, for leading and guiding the students in their writing and the newspaper layout!

The newspaper articles cover a range of reports from interviews with students, faculty to pictures of the various speakers and events we have hosted this week. In the words of the editors, The Bobcat Globe is “ACDS’s first-ever Festival of Learning Online Newspaper. In conjunction with the iPad Pilot Program and ICL (Information Communication Literacy), The Bobcat Globe focused on providing students with the skills necessary to feel comfortable in a paper-less world, whether reading, writing, or sharing information.”

I could not be more proud of our students today!
