A New Math App.

Lots of students are reviewing and refining their math skills using a new app. called TenMarks.  Students engage in Jam Sessions to reinforce skills that have mastered and are assigned new activities to challenge new math concepts.  You can never get too much math practice!  Excellent math work to all of my TAG Time Math kiddos!   :)

Middle School Leadership Day

Edgerton Students Attend Middle School Leadership Day

Four 6th grade students attended Middle School Leadership Day at UW-Whitewater on Thursday, Oct. 20th.   These students were entertained by an animated illusionist who sent a positive message about what it means to be a good leader in our society today.  Activities revolved around refining and reviewing effective leadership skills.  These students also received a “bonus” tour of the UW-Whitewater IT Department by Steve Doll, Julia Doll’s father,   The students learned about the depth of technology that is used at the University level to keep all devices running and all users safe from fraud.
