Karl is Troubleshooting Printer Issues

Lately we have noticed that the IP address of the printer has been appearing instead of the name of the printer EX: 10.1.6.40 instead of IH-LMC-B&W. If you notice this issue, please email kpearson@sd25.org letting him know which computer you were using. Thank you!

UPCOMING PD!

What's your #eduwin?

Have you joined Twitter yet? If not, you should! Twitter lets you follow thousands of educators from around the world. Even if you don't want to create your own posts, you will get a newsfeed full of ideas to try in your classroom as well as links to educational articles and blogs.


What should you tweet about? Anything going on in your classroom! Post a picture of students working together on an activity. Link to a video project one of your students produced. You and your students are doing AMAZING things in your classroom every single day. Share it with the world. Feeling like your students really accomplished an educational goal? Put #eduwin at the end of your tweet! It will link to a page full of wins!


Here's one of our favorites:

"Can't we skip lunch and recess and keep working on our art projects? We can eat at home!" #eduwin
