This issue is all about My Big Campus!

My Big Campus is a social networking tool designed to be used in a school environment. It was designed by the people at Lightspeed (the people who designed our online filtering system) so you already have a password and you know that it's safe. Just use your school computer username and I.D. and you can get started. It looks like FaceBook, but it's so much more! Please contact me if you'd like any assistance getting started. Thousands of teachers and students all over the country are already using it!
