Nuts and Bolts


We have been trying to keep the HCS livebinder up to date on a weekly basis. The link to this binder will stay in each Smore update for your reference.


Iready icons has been pushed to all laptops. If you do not see this, restarting the computer will solve the problem. If you are having trouble with sound, please try to restart the computer as well. If you are having trouble with Iready lessons, please contact Christine and Sarah for support.

**Shutting down the laptops at the end of the night is a good idea!

Professional Development
