NEW : Family History Activities

Teachers please plan ahead to develop Family History projects with your students January and February. We are asking teachers to guide their students in interviewing relatives to help them build a family tree with short biographies for different family members. January is data gathering; February will be biography writing and uploading family-approved writings and photos to build a family tree online. If you would like to host a how-to Family History Night in January, or a Family History Showcase Night in February, we have these events on the calendar to help support your family involvement activities.

From all of us at Camp Internet Best Wishes for a wonderful Holiday Season and New Year!
