Here’s What We Know:

New Students We have several new students starting school this week in the MS. Students will arrive on Monday morning. Ambassadors will help get kids to classes etc. They will have their iPads at LUNCH!  Please do remember to add them to your Google Classrooms and make sure that they know their next destination if the ambassador isn’t there!

iPad Cases: We are working on an iPad keyboard solution. I have gotten a few new options that are hopefully working and not breaking. I plan to send out a survey in the next few days. A survey for the kids...are you using your keyboard? We are hoping to find out their usage but trying to make sure that it isn’t based on the case that isn’t working. Do they like they keyboard? The second survey will be for teachers. Would it work to have kids choose to have a keyboard case? Or is it important for you that they all have keyboards? Send me a note if you have a strong opinion!!

Professional Development Opportunities: A list of conferences for technology has been added to the office of teaching and learning website..under Other conferences.

ATHLETICS & ACTIVITIES:

After School Activities

No After School Activities in the week of January 14-18.  Middle School Season 3 After School Activities & Athletics begin on January 22.

LIBRARY:

DVDs

We’re going to check out DVDS to students and parents and are thinking of integrating the DVD collection into the book collection so they’ll get more use. If there are DVDs that you don’t want to students to have access to because they are critical to your teaching, please let me know and we’ll set those aside.
