Media & Tech Tips

A newsletter from your Media & Tech Team

Do you know your "stuff" (or where it is)?

Do you have three student laptops checked out? Do you have a Mimio checked out? If you are not sure what is checked out to you, please ask Debbie and Allison for a print out of your items. If you let someone borrow your items, make sure you get them BACK. Ultimately, if they are checked out to you, it is your responsibility to have them at the end of the year!

eCLASS Monday

Make plans to come to the data room on Monday for our eCLASS Data Day. Please bring your laptops. Laura Girard will be here to work with you!

Book Fair

Thank You for your support and flexibility during our Winter Book Fair. All funds raised will help us purchase new books, videos, read-a-longs, AR tests, laminating and much more!

Six Flags Read to Succeed

Signed student reading logs were due to you on February 16th. Please turn in all completed logs to Allison on Friday, February 19 or Monday, February 22. She and Debbie will log all student information into the Six Flags program for you. Thank you for giving your students an opportunity to be rewarded for all of the reading they do!

TumbleBooks

Don't forget that we have access to a lot of Ebooks through our media catalog, as well as thru our Online Research Library. One great example is TumbleBooks. If you haven’t checked out this database, give it a try! This database is a collection of animated, talking picture books with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, Math Stories, Read-Alongs, Videos and has Tumble Resources for teachers and students.
