That is really impressive!
I'm glad to see the students doing such interesting work.
You can invite any of your students to post their favorite sites in the Multimedia Sound forum, and I'd love for them to mention their own work.
Go to the forum at: http://forums.about.com/ab-mmsound/messages
I've included a link to the project in the Interesting Sound sites section.
Keep up the good work. Thanks!

Thank you so much for contacting me about this site! I would be happy to review this site and write my next article on it. I had planned to do some in depth articles regarding Word, but I will gladly put them off and do an article for this site. I will also be including a link to the website within the article and adding it to my links from the topic page. If you don't mind, I do have one request. I would like to know more about the kids who developed this web site. What are the age groups? How long did this project take? I realize you said this was an inner city school, what exactly does that mean? I have never been to New York so I do not know much about it. I would like this information to help me develop the article.
Congratulations to all of you who participated in this project on the award you have won! I will also make an announcement on the Editor message boards regarding this site. There may be another Editor who could use this as an article too. It may relate more towards the kids who did the work or the processes they went through to create this site. Anything I can do to get the word out I would be happy to.
I also write for several other Web sites and I could post articles there as well, if you would like for me to. You just say the word!
Your students can look for this article on Friday Sept. 8,2000 if they are interested in reading it. Let them know that they are welcome to email me or start a discussion on the topic page if the would like to regarding the article.
Again, thank you so much for contacting me. I consider this an honor.

Thanks Steve for forwarding the links. I have included them in my Feature Sites link on my web page. I have been busy redesigning my page and only spent a brief time investigating yours. However, it seem quite thorough and well done.
My page is mainly used by elementary school kids in Calgary, Canada, where I teach grade three/four. I'm trying to make the site more interesting and interactive. If you know of any schools that would benefit from my site, please pass on my address. http://eduweb.spancity.com
If you have time, I would appreciate feedback on the site and would also like to know how you found me.

Thanks so much for sending me the URL for your project. I am copying the CNIB Digital Librarian, Jennifer Horwath, on this message, suggesting that she review your site and consider including a link on our website 'For Kids.' One preliminary observation I would make is that you should check your entire website for accessibility using: http://www.cast.org/bobby/
Bobby is a web-based tool that analyzes web pages for their accessibility to people with disabilities. CAST offers Bobby as a free public service in order to further its mission to expand opportunities for people with disabilities through the innovative uses of computer technology. Regards,
CNIB Library for the Blind
Thank you for passing my letter along to Jennifer for review. We are very much aware of the Bobby Approval Rating. Our Artifaq 2100 quiz is Bobby Approved. /13681/data/nyc/nnquiz.htm
This page is the essential link to access the Future Art Gallery. We designed the site for Universal Accessibility. There are no frames versions of all Framed pages.
Please read my article which addresses these issues: /13681/data/learn/fax2.htm
Thank you for your suggestion, favorable review and encouragement!
Date: Wed, 6 Sep 2000 9:53:17 -0500
Thank you for passing along your URL to us at the CNIB Library. I have reviewed your site for accessibility and it is very accessible. I will pass along the URL to our Webmaster to add to our website "For Kids". Thanks again!

Anne Connor sent your message (below) to me. Our committee of reviewers all thought the sites were outstanding, but more geared for adolescents. (Kid's Path is designed for children up to grade 5, or about age 12.)
I have forwarded your message to our Coordinator of Young Adult Services so that she can evaluate the sites for Teen Web (http://www.lapl.org/ya/index.html).
Thank you very much for bringing the sites to our attention!

It's great to hear about your student's Think Quest projects. They both look creatively exciting, and we will certainly feature them in the Education section of an upcoming edition of Netweek.
We've had a lot of feedback from readers of Richard Doble's newsletter, so he obviously gave us a good rap.
Thanks for your submission. Congratulations on winning the Microsoft award. You obviously have a very talented bunch of kids.

Thank you for your message. Congratulations on your students' award! I would love to feature your students for an upcoming Amazing Kids! of the Month story on the Amazing Kids! website. :)
Their work sounds fascinating! And as someone who is a lover of the arts, right up my alley. :)
I am on a business trip for the next week, but will be back in the office next Thursday. I will review your students' website, and respond in more detail when I have given it the time and full attention it deserves.
I am really excited about learning more about ArtiFAQ 2100. Your students are so fortunate to have such a dedicated instructor!
I will be in touch.
Thanks again for letting me know about the amazing students at John F. Kennedy High. :)
