Schoology

Great job increasing our Schoology usage last week! There is a graph below showing the increase in the number of students accessing Schoology. Our goal is to have over 80% of students accessing Schoology on a regular basis.


Please continue to make contact with parents and encourage them to have their child login to Schoology daily. We truly appreciate all you have done to consistently connect with your students.
