Notes from your Administration

Thank you so much for all you do each and every day. We saw excellent presentations and interactive sessions for our students and families on Thursday during Literacy Night and appreciate you for providing this and supporting our vision. Friendship Day today was a great success as well - thank you to all who assisted with these experiences for our students. Please make sure your lesson plans are current and available and agendas are posted and updated for students. At the end of the day, please have students packed and ready to transition. We will have a faculty meeting on Monday. Enjoy your weekend and don't forget self-care! We will see you back on Monday!

Minute PD on Dyknow

Dyknow should be used to help push quick links out to students during instruction, and help with monitoring students on devices during independent practice or independent work. Some students may require "Allow Only" plans if their actions on devices continue to become a distraction.
