SEM Celebrations January 2013


On January 24th, our 1st-8th grade students set up around the school and gave presentations on what they learned in the first semester’s SEMs.  They learned about oceans, magical thinking, buildings and bridges, dinosaurs, monologues and much much more.  We at 278 think our SEMs are pretty awesome!  At 278, we know learning can be fun!  Go 278!
