Riley Ries, Kelsey Wislon, and Kayla Rorrer helped the Magics take an early 4-0 lead. Kloee Cuckler shut the door on the Grizzlies late with a two-out grand-slam in the Magics seventh inning.

BEE Book Club News

Students from several third grade classes met with Mr. Olsen’s and Mrs. Bruzda’s book club and read "Bunnicula" by James and Deborah Howe. When the Magical Theater of Barberton announced that it would be performing their adaptation of the book, the students in the book club jumped into action. They used the computer lab and Chromebooks to create a shared presentation. They were able to work at school and from home through Google Apps for Education. They shared their presentation with classes before the performance. They used the study guide provided by Magical Theater to create slides with vocabulary and discussion questions.
