CURRENT EVENT LINKS

REMEMBER, you have a week to complete your current event. DON'T WAIT until the night before the event is due. You may encounter Internet/Printer problems. Technology failure is NOT an excuse for a late Current Event. 

Great sites,
BUT REMEMBER, an article from a newspaper is ALWAYS acceptable. If your printer is not working, use a newspaper or see Mrs. Osborn.
