Don't forget to join us for Parent Technology night. We will spend time helping to equip parents with information to help students be successful with their digital devices. Please bring your student's device and login information. The STEM team will focus on a variety of websites used during the school day, including: Google Classroom, Skyward, STEMscopes, Membean, etc.

Membean Vocabulary

Please remember that EVERY student should be completing 30 minutes a week on the Membean Vocabulary site. This weekly time is counted as a grade for students in Language Arts. (Weeks start on Monday and run through Sunday evening) It is recommended that students spend 5-10 minutes a day to complete this time.
