On Friday, May 29th, several students of French went to New York City after school with their teacher, Ms. Barbara Broomall, for an evening of culture and fun. First stop was the MOMA for some post-impressionist art, and then a quick walk to the bistro, "La Bonne Soupe." Escargots, a first for many, made for a memorable first course and a good time was had by all.

Ms. Dawn Rivas has been using SKYPE in her classroom to provide students with experiences unavailable to them. Pictured here is the visit with a World War II Navy Pilot who lives in Illinois. He was able to share his experiences, his thoughts and opinions and how they were relevant to today's world. If you look closely at the picture, you can see River Dell students gathered in the library engaged in a question and answer session with him.
Her students have also "visited" the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. Using SKYPE in the classroom allows students to connect through interactive and dynamic field trips without leaving their seats. They were also engaged in a webinar on the Holocaust and had the opportunity to engage in a discussion with the educational director of a museum devoted to Holocaust studies.
