Week of Sept 15

Rubik's Cube: A question, waiting to be answered

What's Important This week?

You have NEW icons on your desktop! One says eSchool Teacher and has the Chrome symbol above it. This opens in your Chrome browser, and goes to bit.ly/friscoeschool. If you use dashboard for administration, there is an icon with an e for you that says eSchool Administrator.

VMS- Teaming Monday is going to set up our teaming for the rest of the semester! Be sure you are there. Non-teamed folks are welcome at any team meeting (periods 1,2,3,6,7,8) if you would like to come (not required).

CTE- Come by and visit if you need anything! I am now located downstairs in the old Credit Union next to Sherry and I would love to help!

Looking Ahead: I am on regular schedule this week and next!

Tip of the Week- eSchool

Did you know you can make eSchool auto-save your grades (like in years past!)? Hover over your name at the top right, and click on the Settings menu. Then scroll down and look in the Gradebook section for the Auto Saving option.

If you do NOT use this option, you need to be Save HAPPY! Save all the time. It will time out after 90 minutes and you could lose all your work if you do not save.

Tool of the Week- Google Timer

Easy classroom timer! If you use the Google Chrome browser, you can just type an amount of time, for example “timer 5 minutes” into the location bar at the top of any page! Then press the “Enter” key to activate the timer.

You can also do this in any other browser by going to google.com and typing your timer setting into the search box.
