Today’s Birthday: Gabby Douglas

It's December 31, the last day of the year, and gymnast Gabby Douglas turns 17 years old today.  Gabby burst on the scene at the London Olympics, where she won gold medals in the individual and team all-around competitions.  Those gold medals allowed her to have one of the best years of any athlete, male or female.  On New Year's Eve, many people look back at the accomplishments of the past year.  For us at the American School, 2012 was a year of many accomplishments, but in particular our online learning initiatives took major steps forward.  This blog and our Facebook page have kept you up-to-date on our latest online courses and new online exams in paper-based courses, and we have bigger plans for 2013.  Be sure to add our Online Learning page to your favorites and visit that page often so that you'll be the first to know about them.  A happy and safe new year to all, and we'll have our first blog of 2013 on Wednesday.
