It's the start of a new decade, and the start of a new project for Dawn's classes at Rankin.

As part of the learning in my classroom, students are going to be posting projects, ideas, and news on this site for the world to see.

We hope you enjoy a glimpse into the kinds of things we're exploring in our little nook of the world!

Please be sure to comment on our site, as feedback is what makes most things worthwhile... and allows us to learn from what we are doing!

Questions and/or additional comments can be sent directly to the teacher, Dawn Gillis, at:

  1. Aloha from Maui. Our classroom is also participating in the blog challenge. My classroom has students ranging in ages from 12-14. I really like the theme of your blog. How exciting that one of your students participated in the Olympics as a torch bearer!! Please visit our blog at


  2. Hello and G'day from Melbourne, Australia.
    As an exiled Scot, I was thrilled to see your Gaelic welcome, and to notice your location.
    Your students have done an amazing job with their YouTube clips. Sad that the Olympics had to end!
