Thanks to everyone who turned in their reading minutes for February! So far this school year we have read over ONE MILLION MINUTES!

Ms. Thompson-White's class was once again the class of the month. Great job to her students! They read 33,715 minutes and averaged over 1000 minutes of reading each.

Tech Tip: Saving Student Work

It is time to begin thinking about saving student work. Many student-created documents are saved in the top level of the Student Activities folder which will be cleaned out over the summer. Any student work that you or the student want to be able to access after this school year needs to be moved to a teacher folder.

Any documents not saved in a folder at the end of the school year will be deleted.

To move student work to a folder, simply click on the document, drag it to the appropriate folder, and drop it in the folder.
