Students from Evan Moston's fifth grade class used an Eno board to give a presentation on the history and significance of Veteran's Day. Patriotic music played while the students provided informational facts.
River Elementary School Principal Dr. Tania Dalley was extremely proud of how the students did and the hard work that they put into the projects.
“I was excited when the students wanted to do something using the technology - incorporating movie clips, incorporating music clips," Daley said. "Our students are digital natives. This is the generation that we’re in, where they need to use the technology, because it helps keep them engaged and motivated to learn.”
Superintendent Michael Locantore loved the presentations.
"Whenever I see kids perform in any way it lights my life up," Locantore said.
