Stand up and be counted!

Your parents probably sent in a census form recently.  Visit the U.S. Census site to discover many interesting facts and figures such as:

There are currently 308,975,255  people in the United States.
27.4% of the population holds a bachelor's degree or higher. (25.1%  in Texas)
It takes the average student 5.6 years to complete a bachelor's degree.
There are not as many video stores as there used to be!

There is also a census site just for teens.

Wednesday's the Big Day!

Tomorrow is the day students take their ELA TAKS test. Once you complete the test, you get to read!!! Don't forget to stop by the library and check out some books. Imagine relaxing with a good book after you work hard and complete your exam. If you're not sure what to pick, just ask a librarian. Mrs. Gillum, Mrs. LeBoy, and Mrs. Logsdon will be glad to help.
