If you belong to more than one Fulton group, please be sure to check on whether or not you will be able to attend. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND THIS VANGUARD EVENT IF YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BE AT A DIFFERENT FULTON TRAINING.
Media Specialists will be at the conference center with us.

Microsoft Teams BADGE
Microsoft Teams is an entirely new experience that brings together people, conversations and content—along with the tools that teams need—so they can easily collaborate to achieve more. Throughout the school year, we will be using Microsoft Teams to communicate, share resources, answer questions, brainstorm, and distribute information to fellow Vanguardians. We strongly encourage you to get familiar with Teams and earn a badge!
