October Newsletter

What you need to know to stay in the know

What we've accomplished so far:

  • Every Kindergarten-Second classroom has 1 device for every 2 students. All students in Third-Fifth grade have their own devices. iPads are checked out, updated, and ready for learning. Self service is working and filled with great apps!
  • Every classroom has a library checkout time that has been running smoothly. (And all kids are starting with a clean slate with no dues!)
  • Each class has come to Makerspace and learned about all of our great things!
  • 4/5 blends have set up Blogger accounts to use for reading comprehension journals.
