If you have any extra time, please ask your students if they have taken the survey yet.Somehow we have almost 600 students who didn't take the survey. If they need to take it, send them with a pass to the library and we will get them taken care of.

Canvas Post-It Questions- Answered!!

I have put ALL of your post-it note questions with answers on this padlet.

You are welcome to add more questions, but if you do I ask that you click the three dots in the upper right corner of your post and turn it green so I will see that there is something new!

You guys had some GREAT questions so I would encourage everyone to check out the padlet!

Blazer Button - Button of the Week- BULB!

Bulb is our online portfolio system and it is SUPER easy to learn. I had some juniors come down and learn bulb during lunch periods before Winter break, and art classes have already been working with the portfolios as well. One of the District Improvement Team goals this year is for 65% of our students to have a digital portfolio by the end of the year. That would mean that more classes need to start using Bulb! I want you to know that I am available to come and co-teach with you, or work with your PLC, or support you in whatever way I can with using Bulb! Please let me know if you are interested!

When you set up YOUR Bulb portfolio online and create an About Me page, you can get a Blazer Button. :) Doing that will help you get ready to use Bulb with your kiddos.

Wandering Chromebooks

Miscellaneous Chromebooks are finding their way into other carts! If you reserve more than one cart, please be sure to check the computers before you return them. All the devices should be neatly stored in the correct numbered slot fo the correct cart, and they should all be plugged in and charging. Your friends who will be using them the next day will really appreciate you!
Big picture

Missing Equipment

Two document cameras have disappeared from the rooms they were in. We have been told to file police reports for these missing items and consider them stolen.

Please DO NOT move ANY technology equipment from room to room. If you need something moved, please put in a HelpDesk ticket. Doc cameras are under warranty and if they are broken we can get you a replacement. If we are short one, we can get one added to our campus inventory. But when one just disappears, it causes a HUGE issue for us!

Thank you so much for your help with this!
