Welcome to the Jillville Mini-Society.

This first year of the Mini-Society in our classroom was a learning experience for everyone. We all learned together as we went, problem solving and making adjustments on a daily basis. Our culminating auction was a great success thanks to donations from SuperTarget, Borders, and Barnes and Noble.
