Report cards!

Hopefully you saw the Manila envelope in Friday folders today. The report card is yours, but please sign and return the envelope. This way, I know you've seen the report card. As always, please let me know if you have any questions about anything.

Digital Gatekeeping

To make it easier for us to keep track of where and when your child goes when on the Chromebook, you can have he or she log in, then press the ctrl and H keys at the same time. This will bring up the browsing history by the minute. We discussed listening to music while working this week, but You Tube seems to be the location of choice. NOT SAFE! We'll discuss alternatives this week, but for now, the rule is no music (and has been since Thursday). I'll also be sending you your child's login credentials so you can see what they've been up to. Keeping tabs on kids helps keep them safe.
