Arbor Heights Elementary School has been on the Internet, contributing to the educational web for a long, long time.
The Arbor Heights web site was the 9th elementary school web site in the world. It appeared in Bill Gates' "The Road Ahead", it founded and still coordinates The Earth Day Groceries Project
, it hosted the only complete archive of "The Random Thoughts of Louis Schmier
", it hosts The Jr. Seahawk Newsletter
(The oldest continuously published elementary school student newspaper on the Internet), and it continues to lead in innovation as it just became a wiki rather than a web site: http://arborheights.com
Here's a chance to give back FROM the net. If any of these activities has made a difference to you or your school, please consider sending a short note our way. We are collecting comments from educators around the world to present to our school board, as they think about whether they should keep Arbor Heights Elementary School open, or close it forever.
You can send a short note to Mark Ahlness at firstname.lastname@example.org
