When Things Get Crazy

We’ve all had those moments, those days, those classes when we’re thankful if our students are just compliant. We all hope for that engaged and empowered class, but there are those days where things can just get crazy! Shorter weeks, bad weather, late starts, alternative schedules, test days, and spring fever can take a toll on student engagement and productivity. How about shaking things up a bit?

Consider a redesign or a reboot to keep students engaged and empower their learning. Check out these ideas:

Which Digital Tools are You Using?

We've had a lot of freedom at Pine Creek regarding the tools we choose to use. We'd like to continue having you, the experts, continue to be the ones choosing the tools your students use. That's why we are asking you to partner with us.

Partner with us and help us ensure your tools for classes, teams, clubs and activities are approved and ready for to use when you need them. PLAN AHEAD. Visit Pine Creek's Resource List; it includes the resources submitted by you. Don't see the one you'd like to use? Visit the District database. Still don't see your resource? Fill out the Digital Tool Application and we'll get it submitted to District IT for approval. Once the tool is approved, we'll update our list and inform you. This process takes time, especially if a purchase needs to be made.

Please be patient with us and the District as we embark on this new process. The District database is continually being updated as is our own resource list. Our goal is to ensure you have the resources you need while protecting our students' privacy.

Have questions? Contact anyone of your Digital Resource Team members, Susan, Sasha or Steve.
