Vanderbilt Virtual School Black History Month at USN

Our 5th grade students are participating along with several other schools across the country in an Interactive Videoconferencing series offered by Vanderbilt Virtual School and focused on Black History. The series, as outlined by the VVS website, consists of five program presentations with opportunities to ask questions of the presenters. The classes will participate in the first four, but they'll have to miss the last opportunity due to scheduling complications.

This a wonderful series and we thank VVS Director Patsy Partin for putting it together and making it available. Thanks also to Tandberg Corporation for their loan of the fabulous Edge95 codec that makes our crystal clear connections possible!
