Students of the Danville Area School District used to have to lug around large textbooks for every class, go to the library to find information for assignments, and write with actual writing utensils, but now, because of the world wide web, old standards required for learning have “left the building.” With a simple search for a textbook title on “Google,” students are able to access large

We were all eating Mama’s homemade muffins, which I, Emma, am sure the President would be awestruck by if he had some .Just then, Mama came down the wooden stairs carrying baby James.
