Shared School Calendar
The school calendar is now available online as a shared Google calendar. You should have received a link from Julie last week letting you know that the school calendar had been shared with you. If you know how to access your Google apps account, you can view the calendar now. If not, there will be a Google Calendar training at a later date. Having a shared school calendar will improve communication about school events because whenever events are cancelled or changed, you will receive an alert via your school email.
Tech Resource of the Week -- Quizlet
What is Quizlet?
Quizlet is a free website providing learning tools for students, including flashcards, study and game modes. Many teachers are using Quizlet as part of their center rotations. My six year old daughter uses it at home so it's definitely appropriate for students of all ages. Quizlet also has a free app so you can definitely use it on your iPads.

Mr. S. and Mr. Maynard are Augmenting Reality!
The picture above was not taken at CHA but Mr. S. and Mr. Maynard have found a really cool augmented reality resource that provides students with a 3D environment to explore the solar system. Take some time to check in with them and see what they're up to. It's pretty cool stuff.
