Back to School!

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

It’s almost time for the new school year! This year we are excited to announce “The Case of the Plagiarized Paper!” It’s ready for schools across the country! This episode is brand new for the year, and has already received recommendations from the Video Librarian Publication, Dr. Toy, and the Coalition for Quality Children’s Media. It has been accepted into several film festivals- including San Deigo and Brooklyn. It’s appropriate for students of all ages, especially between 4th grade-10th grade. You can easily integrate it into your writing and technology lessons, or use it for a schoolwide assembly.

This summer, the actor’s of Adina’s Deck have been up to lots of fun stuff!

~ “Adina” Amelia Varni is acting in  “Bye Bye Birdie” at the Gallo Theater in Modesto

~ “Clara” Ciera Trussell is gearing up to enter the 10th grade in the Sacramento area!

~ Full updates on the actors can be found in the July edition of the Adina’s Deck Newsletter

We hope you have a great rest of the summer!
