Eastern Welcomes DVM TV!

For the second time in less than a month students here at Eastern were featured by DVM news here in Maryland! On March 28th Eastern Elementary hosted Google Expeditions AR and then on April 17th students were featured due to their global work with blogging! It is an awesome site to see the pride that many of the students take in their work and that it truly shows when they speak about it! I will post the link to the news story as soon as I have it.

This is an opportunity to meaningfully engage with cutting edge 21st century technology and delve deeper into content and concepts that would not be possible with just text and pictures! Let’s make our visitors feel welcome and show them the rockstars that we have here at Eastern!
