Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !

Edward R. Murrow High School, is located in the Midwood section of Brooklyn, New York City, New York and is part of the New York City Department of Education. This school was created under the supervision and leadership of Mr. Saul Bruckner, who was also the first principal of the school. Mr. Bruckner retired in 2004
Murrow H.S. opened in 1974 under the supervision and leadership of Saul Bruckner as principal. The school was named for the pioneering television newsman Edward R. Murrow. Murrow H.S. was founded according to the pedagogical theories of John Dewey and the learning methods of John Dewey High School. Mr. Bruckner retired in 2004 and died on May 1, 2010, in Brooklyn, New York. Mr. Anthony Lodico became Murrow's second principal after Mr. Bruckner's retirement. In March 2012, Anthony Lodico announced his resignation from Murrow in order to accept the High School Superintendent position. Effective April 2, 2012, Allen Barge will assume the role of interim acting principal.
[Formerly] Westinghouse Talent Search, semi-finalists consistently since 1995, and the Virtual Enterprise program has been regarded as the best in the country, winning such honors as 1st place at the National Business Plan competition in 2005, 2007, and 2008. Murrow's We The People also recently emerged as the 2007 New York State Champions at We The People Competition in Schenectady, New York. The We the People team also placed in the top 21 and won a Unit 2 award  at the 2007 National competition held in Washington D.C.
Keeping in line with Dewey's theories on education, Murrow has an unusual schedule structure. The academic year is divided into four 9-week "cycles", rather than 2 semesters; students receive new class schedules and therefore, a new set of teachers every 9 weeks. The daily schedule shifts depending on the day of the week, with class lengths varying from 45 minutes to an hour, and each class meets only 4 times a week; there are no bells to mark off the time between classes, and no time explicitly scheduled in between. Rather than having a lunch period or study halls, Murrow students have free periods called "OPTA"s (Optional Time Activities), used for studying, eating, or relaxing, hanging out.
Murrow students are also permitted to take independent study courses called MILEs ("Murrow Independent Learning Experiences"). While most work is completed independently, students taking a MILE meet with an instructor once a week for 15 minutes to collect homework assignments. The grade designating successful completion ("MI"; see below) is based largely on the final exam and is credited as a 98 in the student GPA.
Murrow has a number of unique features including:
Edward R. Murrow High School is also known for its outstanding theater program. Their success in the arts was recognized by Mel Brooks, who granted the school to be the first ever to gain rights to the smash hit musical "The Producers" in Spring 2008.
The Edward R. Murrow chess team has won seven national championships, fifteen state titles and sixteen city championships. The Edward R. Murrow HS chess team's success has been chronicled in "THE KINGS OF NEW YORK: A Year Among the Geeks, Oddballs, and Geniuses Who Make Up America's Top High School Chess Team", by sportswriter Michael Weinreb. "The Kings of New York" follows the 2005 championship-winning season of the Murrow Team. It was reviewed in the March 4, 2007 NY Times Book Review. The team was personally congratulated by President Bush in the Oval Office on December 15, 2004. A movie, based on "The Kings of New York" will begin production sometime in 2011.
There are 4130 students in the school as of the 2010-2011 school year. The demographics of the school are 49.99% White (non-Hispanic), 19.01% Black or African American, 21.38% Asian, 14.76% Hispanic or Latino and 0.2% Native American. The student/teacher ratio is 20/1. The Department of Education has released the annual Progress Reports for all high schools. Murrow received a grade of "A" on the 2009-10 Progress Report, and a rating of "Well Developed" on the Quality Review for the same period.
