TechTip

Keep your MacBook running quickly and operating smoothly with these three easy steps:


  • Restart your computer each day! A fresh restart fixes many issues by conducting a self-check and repair procedure.
  • Quit out of programs you are not currently using. Leaving applications open makes your computer work harder than it needs to.
  • Free up some space on your computer by deleting unnecessary documents, pictures, and emails that slow down your computer. Is it time for a fall cleaning?

unFACULTY MEETINGS

Mr. Manguso is demonstrating 21st Century leadership and innovation by changing how Riverdale faculty meetings will be conducted this school year. The information being presented will not change, however the delivery of the information will. Instead of holding traditional, regularly scheduled faculty meetings, Mr. Manguso will utilize Schoology, a learning management system (LMS), to relay important information to his teachers and staff. The information posted may be in the form of embedded videos, shared articles, documents with instructions or procedures, online faculty discussions, etc. With all of the information posted online, these resources will be archived and available for future referencing in hopes of improving communication and productivity. As the teachers celebrate fewer faculty meetings, the administration is celebrating real time collaboration with their faculty; that equals a win-win for Riverdale!
