ASB Holds Spring Sports Night Rally

Our ASB crew held a Spring Sports Night Rally on Friday Night. To say that the energy level was high would be an understatement. I want to give a shoutout to Andy Schultz. Under his leadership, his ASB group put on a Multicultural Assembly, Spring Sports Night Rally, and Sadies Dance in the span of 8 days!

WENDLAND TECHNOLOGY UPDATES

Google File Stream

Google used to have a program that allowed you to add Google Drive to Windows to make it function like any other folder on your computer. They have revamped it and renamed it to Google File Stream. The functionality is basically the same, except now it will look like a Network Drive versus a Folder. The main benefit of installing this on your computer is that you can now save everything to your Drive, where you have unlimited storage, and be able to access it from anywhere you have internet access.
