Kyle Elementary follows donaUons Students at Kyle Elementary donated $1,438 to Doctors Without Borders this spring to help Haiti relief efforts. The Panthers recently followed up on their donation, connecting through Webex with Drs. Craig Hobar and Alejandra Mitchell, plastic and craniofacial sur- geons, who told them about their current Haiti efforts and how donations from across the globe are helping the earth- quake-ravaged country. The whole Webex experi- ence was enhanced last week as the site did a live interview with Instructional Technologist Tracy Mulligan and others from the Kyle Elementary staff, as well as a few students. District distance learning specialist Christie Rickert said Mulligan "did us proud as she spoke very eloquently about how using Webex has helped expand possibilities for collaborations around the world. Honestly, be- tween videoconferencing and webconferencing...we have' the capability to connect with just about anyone!"
