Welcome Back!

It is hard to believe that we are almost a month into school. It has been great seeing all of the exciting lessons happening in each of the schools. Below are some helpful tips, resources, and ideas you can use as we head into September! As always, feel free to contact Carly or Kyle with any questions.

E-mailing Parents, Students, and Teachers

Did you know you could e-mail all of the parents and students in your classes directly from your PowerTeacher gradebook? Did you know you can now e-mail all of one of your student's teachers with the click of the mouse from in PowerSchool? Click the links below to learn how.

Hidden Menus in Canvas

We have had students, staff, and parents all ask the same question, "Where is the menu bar?" One of the new features in Canvas is that it changes depending on the device and screen size being used. As the screen or window size gets smaller, it adjusts what is shown on the page. It will automatically hide the left menu bar to display more content from your course. To access the menu bar, click the new "Menu Bar" icon in the top left corner of the screen (three horizontal lines). The menu will then be displayed. To hide the menu, click it again (see image below). Please let Carly or me know if you have any questions about Canvas and how you can use it with the students in your class.
