In STEAM, students in 3rd Grade have been using Little Bits, electronic building blocks that snap together with magnets, to learn about creating circuits! The power source blocks, input blocks and output blocks are all color coded, and they have been learning about how the input affects the output by tying in the Reading skill, "cause and effect!"

CHIPPEWA TWP. -- It quickly became apparent that the Ambridge girls’ soccer team was entering uncharted territory Monday night after a 6-3 playoff-clinching win over Blackhawk.
“This is the first time in my career I’ll be going to the playoffs,” said senior captain Taylor Mealie, who's first half goal extended the lead to 3-1. “I had faith in my teammates that we could do it.”
That faith, though, would have been wasted without actions. The Bridgers needed to win at Blackhawk to make the playoffs.
