  • Lunch period challenge!

    Posted by Julie Horwat on 12/11/2018

    Try the Google a Day Challenge!  On the first page, Google will tell you go to do it and gives you an excellent example.  This should appeal to those who enjoy escape rooms--it's that creative thinking and problem-solving thing!  Work as a team or play alone.  Let me know if you get them right!
