Welcome Back Edition

Big picture

Here we go!

Welcome Back, ECS! I hope you had a fabulous summer!


This year, I am coming back to work full-time and will serve Hosp Elementary along with you as their DLC. I haven't nailed down a set schedule yet to know exactly which days I am going to be here each week, but I have placed a link in my email signature that shows my daily whereabouts. I will update that weekly.

Our New ATS...

A big welcome to Dillon Vaughn who is our new Area Tech Specialist! Along with our campus, Dillon supports Bright Academy. If you need his support, please submit a helpdesk ticket. Click here if you need instructions for doing so.

BIG News...

Seesaw for Schools will soon be available for all classroom accounts for the purpose of Digital Portfolios. Tech Admin is just getting the purchase process underway, so I will send updates and schedule a training when we are ready to roll that out. This is exciting news and is going to open up a lot more amazing features of Seesaw for you and our kiddos.


While we are talking about Seesaw...don't forget to paste your Blog URL onto this document so I can update the Staff teacher pages on the campus website.
