On behalf of the Speech-Language Therapy Department, I want to personally thank the Schools Foundation Committee for funding a grant,  I Can Communicate, for the purchase of iPads to be used in speech/language therapy.  The grant money will be used to purchase iPads and apps for Higland Drive School, Chippewa, Middle School and High School.  With the addition of these iPads, I am proud to say every speech-language pathologist will now have an iPad to use in therapy with our students at all levels across the district.

Idiom of the Week 10/24-10/31

Down in the dumps
Really means: very sad
