Starting Jan. 10 from 4-5 pm, we will start offering Technology Tuesdays. I will send out a schedule in the January newsletter. You will then select the sessions you would like to attend. We will be offering sessions on Google, Smart, YouTube, LiveBinders, Claymation, and a whole lot more. Tech Tuesdays will be located in the Technology Building in the training room. You may bring your own laptop, chromebook, iPad, or we will have laptops available for you. We look forward to providing training that will help you in the classroom.


Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!
