The Crosscutters fell behind in the bottom of the third inning against the Muckdogs. Williamsport starter Franklyn Kilome allowed a pair of singles including a walk that would lead to Batavia going up 2-0.

Luis Espiritu looked to give the Cutters a chance to get onto the scoreboard as he lead off the third inning with a single.

It has been estimated that two-thirds of our most vulnerable citizens, children living in poverty, have no books at home and the number of families in poverty is on the rise. Children of all ages who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. The Brown Library realizes the impact of reading in the home and encourages community members to apply for a library card today. Peanuts cartoon favorite Snoopy is the 2015 Honorary Chair for Library Card Sign-up Month.
Today’s libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where customers can collaborate using new technologies, or just relax with peers. The Brown Library has numerous resources available to anyone who has a library card. Students and parents can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable staff.

Her presentation topic was “Take Note! The Synergistic Effects of Metacognition and the Flipped Classroom.” Butzler is an avid educational advocate for “flipped classrooms” – a blended learning approach to standard classrooms.
Flipped classrooms move lectures online – outside of class – and move assignments into the classroom, where teachers can provide guidance and answer questions. Butzler introduced self-regulated learning tools into her flipped classrooms to help students learn to reflect on their thinking processes.
A resident of Jersey Shore and a native of Red Lion, Butzler has taught at Penn College for 16 years. She holds a Doctorate of Education, specializing in e-learning, from Northcentral University; a master’s degree in organic chemistry; a bachelor’s degree in science education from North Carolina State University; and a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Gettysburg College.
