Week in Review

TOP SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

These District 202 social media posts got the most attention and feedback this week:
instagram Students in Mrs. Caparula’s child development class at #PlainfieldSouthHighSchool get to know their infant simulators, affectionately called “robo-babies” on Wednesday, October 2, 2019. The students will have to care for their babies all month. Each baby will cry to be fed, have its diaper changed, rocked or burped at random times throughout the day and night. If they fail to give their baby what it needs, they lose points on their grade and the baby will keep crying. #202proud
