Do you have the power of a flash drive? A flash drive is a data storage device that can hold all your Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoints, Publisher documents, images, music, videos and more. You no longer need to send documents back and forth through email. A flash drive is about the size of your thumb and fits easily into backpacks and pockets!

Flash drives are now on sale in the school library for $10 each! The money raised helps support the activities of the National English Honor Society. These 2GB maroon and silver flash drives are designed with a very attractive Mepham H.S. Pirates logo and keychain. Get yours while supplies last!
