Arrington, Briana.jpg

There are several common words that our current social media-crazed culture is changing: friend, like, follow and creep.
Isn’t it strange how you can be “friends” with someone on Facebook and that’s where the relationship ends? In reality, you’re not friends at all. In fact, I have “friends” on Facebook that I don’t even like in real life. And, to be fair, I’m sure some of my Facebook friends don’t like me either.

Mrs. Carter’s Class
We are 100 days smarter at Glen View. Mrs. Carter’s class enjoyed celebrating our 100th day of school with many fun activities. We made 100 day trail mix, wore special crowns and stickers and counted to 100 in different ways. 
We enjoyed reading many fairy tales, folktales and fables. We learned the differences in these three genres. “Rumpelstiltskin” and “The Frog Prince” were two of our favorites. We are continuing to become very good readers by reading every day and discussing the books we read with our classmates and teacher.
