Episode 73: The Cloud, Chapter 12

Hi All, 

Just a reminder that we are recording a novella that Mr. Chris and I wrote. The story, about kids solving a mystery using their technology skills,  has twenty-five chapters.  
Last week we brought you Chapter 11, where Val and Garrett went to turn in attendance in the office, when they found the principal, Mr. Wolff, was feeling sick. Mr. Wolff tasked them both with drafting health rules for the school, and ended with him and Jamie going home sick.

What type of weather is happening in your neck of the woods? Take a picture and upload it to our group folder. We'll place them on the the class website at to help out The Cloud with their science fair data!
