Here are a few updates for you...

Student Accounts Activated

Student accounts have been activated for all those that have completed an AUP. The best place to find the students usernames and passwords are in Teacher Apps in the 2015-2016 Teacher Files Folder. If a student hasn't turned one in, there will not be an "X" by his/her name in the list. I also have listed a file of students labelled "No AUP" if you'd like to look there. I'm trying to update this a couple of times a week for new students and students that have turned in AUPS late. Also, if you're a homeroom teacher, and you haven't given your students their login information, please do so ASAP!

Computer Labs Ready for Signup

Our computer labs are ready to go. We have 3 labs in the main building (#115, #118, & #120), 1 lab in the annex, and 1 in the library. You can signup for those using the signup genius link below. The password is panthers. You can also get to the signup page from my website (techcoachmandyj.weebly.com). It will be a little bit more time before the iPad mobile lab and the laptop lab will be available. I will send out on update on those (and a link to signup) soon.

PD Offerings

Don't forget! TODAY, September 1st, is the day for new teacher Webpage Training. It's after school in Lab #115 from 3:45 - 5:15. You don't have to signup on Schoolstation for this one, but you will still receive 1.5 hours of inservice credit. Please accept the invite I sent out a couple of weeks ago, if you'd like to attend. (You can check your Office 365 calendar for it, if the email went away!)


Thursday, September 10th - Webpage Training for returning teachers in Lab #115 from 3:45 - 5:30. Same directions as above, but different date.


Tuesday, September 22nd - Office 365 and OneDrive training in Lab #115 from 3:45 - 4:45. You will receive 1 hour of inservice credit for this one, and you don't have to signup on Schoolstation. Please RSVP with me using your invite.


**If you can't make any of these, but need help with these topics, please book me for a day training using the link below.
