Hello My Students!! I hope you all are safe and well!

I want to make sure your brain is still growing and being challenged and those neurons continue to make connections! I will be sharing resources, challenges, logic puzzles, enrichment activities and websites to add some more fun to your learning. It is optional, but I am more than happy to help you all with anything you need!

You can follow @RKESGifted on Twitter as well!

Parents and students, please do not hesitate to email me with questions of just to say "Hi"! DownerLB@pwcs.edu  Miss you all!
