6/21/2010  I just learned we will be getting StarBoards Duo 77 by Hitachi and not SmartBoards.  Below are sites you might like to look at as a preview of what will be in our classrooms.  As I learn more I will update this page.  - Shelley

(Note - SmartBoard software/sites may not work on StarBoards.  You may need to download the StarBoard software onto your computer if you want to test any of the lessons.  The Hitachi representative said they have not tested the SmartBoard sites on their product.)
