An article on bus seat belts is available at the meeting. The issue of school bus seat belts continues around the country with more and more schools including these for additional safety. I thought you might be interested in this topic. There is also an interesting two or three minutes video that demonstrates the positive side of the three-point belt. The web address for this is http://www.schoolbusfleet.com/Videos/Channel/School-Bus-Safety/2010/08/Lap-Shoulder-Belts-on- Buses-One-School-District-s-Expierence.aspx

Please see the attached report from Mrs. Gopp. It was a very interesting morning listening to the children discussing the differences between school and life in general between Lockwood, Montana and Singapore. This is a great use of the Skype application, which is a free tool.

The Rak family has once again donated numerous titles to our library. These books are current titles that students love to read! To date, they have donated 41 books and 15 issues of a magazine subscription. Their generosity is appreciated.
