Going Above and Beyond

Going the Extra Mile


Join the Room 17 Mastery Club!

This is a club for students who are interested in achieving "above and beyond" the normal classroom expectations. All you have to do is learn about the topic, and then write down the answers. You can become a 1-star member, all the way up to a 100-star member! You'll be posted on the "Hall of Fame" chart as soon as you earn 15 stars. Your name will remain there indefinitely. Learning never ends -thank goodness!

Good luck!
