Mr. Blair, a health/fitness teacher here at Skyridge, will be attending his 30th high school reunion this summer in Ohio. Instead of flying or driving, he will be pedaling his road bike across the country! If you would like to “ride along” with him, visit his Facebook page. Mr. Blair plans to post daily comments/pictures during his ride. He will depart from Everett, WA, on June 23 and finish in Washington D.C. on August 5… 44 days, 14 states, 3,200 miles.

Congratulations to Mr. Mattson’s Pre-AP class and a huge thank you to the Camas Education Foundation! Today we were informed that the grant Mr. Mattson’s class researched, wrote and presented, IPods Touches: Touching Children’s Learning Experiences, has been chosen and awarded $7,500. With this money, during the 2011-12 school year our teaching team will pilot the use of a Learning Lab that consists of twenty 8GB iPod Touches to identify best teaching practices with these devices.
