STAR Chart

It is that time of year to fill out the STAR Chart! If you have questions, please let me know! We want to be at 100%! If you need help with your username, just let me know. There is also no submit button. These are due by Friday! If you have completed and I haven't given you your badge, would you please let me know.

Acceptable Use Policies

Please make sure that students have turned these in. Please do not turn them into me until it is a complete set. If you have a student that has not turned it in, please use the form that I had previously sent to document that. Students that do not have AUP's turned can not use computers or devices unless it is for state testing. If you have not filled out this form http://bit.ly/Hg4tsD please do so ASAP

Computer Lab-Before School

I will be opening up the computer lab on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 7:15-7:40 for Think Through Math (I have emailed 3rd-5th grade teachers about this)


On our school website I have added several new blogs. Please invite your students to comment and participate. We have a Number Crunching Blog and starting next week there will be a weekly writing prompt on the Wonderful Writing blog.


There have been so many great technology things already happening! Be sure to check out our blog. Thanks Mr. Rocha, Mrs. Gingrich, and Ms. Eldridge for sharing some great student products! http://elliottexcellence.blogspot.com/ Congratulations to Mrs. Davis for writing a grant and getting 3 Chromebooks for her classroom!

This is a great site with a ton of online presentations over various topics. The best part.... it is FREE! Check it out http://k12onlineconference.org/

Plug and Play

There is still time to complete this months Tech Challenges! I will have 4 new challenges ready to go by next Wednesday. Thank you to all that have been participating! Please let me know if you need any help with any of these challenges. I have loved seeing what everyone is doing! I have some great goodies to those that participate in the challenges (including jeans passes!)
