What the Tech?!

September 2021 Issue

Dear Teachers,

August is under our belt and on to September. As we move into the first full month of school students are becoming comfortable with the technology that they have been given. This is the time of year to really stress the do's and don'ts with the iPad. Below is the reminders for what students should and shouldn't do with their iPads. Please constantly remind them if you see them not following the expectations that were given to them!

iLead Team

This year the iLead team will still be discussing PBL but will be looking at ways in which we can help teachers use the technology we have to enhance the engagement in the classroom. We lost a couple of great teachers this past year but we are adding some equally great teachers for this school year. Welcome to the iLead team Elizabeth Bolen and Lauren Mayes. If anyone else is interested please email me.
