COLUMBIA — Students played Ultimate Frisbee and teachers participated in technology training Tuesday, the second day of summer classes at Columbia's new Battle High School.

Donny Silver, a Spanish teacher at Rock Bridge High School, right, and Jayme Pingrey, a librarian, receive training in Mac programs Tuesday at Battle High School.  Silver works regularly with Battle High World Language teacher and his department coordinator on iBook development. Apple employee Cindy Everest, a former educator, trained teachers how to incorporate Mac programs into their curriculum.
