Exchange May 22nd for a day at NATC!

We have gotten word that if you attend one day of NATC, you can exchange your attendance for the May 22 teacher work day! So...you won’t have to work on May 22nd if you attend the NATC either June 23rd or 24th!



There are several sessions covering Canvas, the new classroom management system that has been purchased for the 2015-16 school year! From the workshops I’ve attended, Canvas looks amazing! Attending a NATC workshop on Canvas will give you a leg up on using this management system in your classrooms next year!

Canvas- MCSS Classroom Management System

The Canvas learning management system (LMS) helps teachers unify their teaching tools in one easy place. Every classroom has basic learning tools, but what happens in each classroom is unique, personalized, and customized by the teacher. The goal of Canvas is to help teachers take learning into the 21st century by making it simple.
