This week in Modern American History students experienced WWII in Virtual Reality.  Using Oculusrift VR they experienced what is was like to jump from a plane during the invasion of Normandy France (D-Day) and parachute in behind enemy lines.  Students also took virtual tours using google expeditions  of the "Battle of Britain Memorial Flight" and "Artifacts of the Tuskegee Airmen."  They completed a VR reflection in the google classroom to document their experience.

Junior Achievement
Plum Senior High School students earned 20 volunteer hours through Junior Achievement by participating in their "Teaching Day" at St. Joe's Elementary School in Verona on February 2nd.  Students prepared and delivered a full-day economics lesson to grades K-8.  The day was a wonderful first-hand experience of what it is like to be a classroom teacher.  PHS students have participated in 2-3 of these days each year for the past five years.  This March, they will once again teach at St. John the Baptist in Plum.
