Steve Jobs would have had a birthday today. He was the co-inventer of the computer and software that most everyone uses today. It is named after a fruit. Do you know the name of the computer? The answer is on the bottom of the announcements that can be seen on the Tiger Talk Blog.
Boxtops are due by Feb. 24th. The grade that turns in the most boxtops will get to pick the morning announcement music for a week. Start gathering those boxtops. We need 750 boxtops to meet our goal for the year. Remember to put your boxtops into bags of 50.
