iPad End of the Year Information

When iPads are turned into the library please make sure they are charged. Why, you may ask? We have to do inventory and to do this we have to go into the settings of each iPad and check the serial #. When you are done with your iPads for the school year, feel free to send them down to the library.


Cubes-When you bring your cube to the library, please make sure to put your cords in a zip lock labeled with your name and current grade level inside the cube.


Apps- I am not sure how much the technology will be cleaning up/clearing off of the iPads but I would suggest that if you have Apps that you really like or want next year you should make note of that somewhere for safe keeping. If you want to email it to us that is fine, too. Next year the app loading is supposed to be different then this year but not sure how or when this will take place.

Shredding

Beginning May 10, there will be several paper boxes for shred material from cumulative files on top of the extra desk in the workroom. In order to maximize the space available, please stack material to be shredded neatly in 2 piles in a box. These boxes will be sent to the district to be shred on May 20. Please let Kelli know if you have any questions.

Fonts and Ideas for Next Year's Theme

Fonts and Ideas for next year’s theme


On the T drive, you will find a folder with Jungle/Vine-type FONTS to go along with next year’s theme. T:\TH\Fonts\Jungle Fonts . You’ll also find in that folder this sheet that shows you what the fonts look like.


A quick reminder on installing fonts: To install the fonts you need to highlight and copy the ones you want. Then go to Start Button, Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Fonts, then PASTE in the fonts. (be careful not to click on a font in the folder when trying to paste. You’ll need to click in between the fonts to be able to paste.) If there is just one or two you want, you can also just OPEN (click on) the Font in the folder and click INSTALL.


Also, here are a few websites that have ideas (also pinterest and teachers pay teachers have tons of ideas):
