iPads touch young lives


Submitted photo / Seventh-grade AVID students from Ennis Junior High School used their school-issued iPads to read original stories to first grade students at Bowie Elementary on Tuesday. The students also visited Crockett Early Childhood Center. The stories originated from the students creating time lines of their life, then writing a memoir, choosing a particular moment in their lives where they learned a valuable lesson, and then creating the story on their iPads. AVID is a program that helps students prepare for college. The student reader pictured is Alyssa Washburn.
