Students Going Places…

Dear Mrs. Caskey,

Imagine my surprise when I went to my scout meeting in August and was handed a copy of the DMN NeigborsGo. I saw my picture on the cover and the article inside the magazine. We were out most of summer visiting Norway and India, so I was totally unaware of this. Thank you so much for working with the Frisco ISD Media relations and getting the article published!!! Here is a link to the article:

I wanted to give you an update on the TEDxKIDS – I met with Sharon Lyle a couple of weeks back and am currently working on the presentation. I hope to see you on November 30th.

I’d like for you to think about the following questions and to be ready  to discuss your thoughts in class on Tuesday.
