  • Daylight Savings Time: The clocks went back an hour this weekend! This means that your classroom clocks may be off by an hour. If this is the case, here are instructions describing how to change the time:
    • Hold the “set” button down until the display flashes
    • Click “set” until you see the hour, then click the plus button until it gets to the hour you need
    • Click “set” until you see the minute, then click the plus button until it gets to the minutes you need
    • Click “set” until your display shows DST, make sure this is turned off
  •  Incentive Tickets: We have seen some super creative ways to carry your incentive tickets around! Some teachers are placing them in plastic bags and pinning them to their keychain, other teachers have found a hard plastic case and attached that to their keyring! We hope that you are enjoying celebrating the success of our learners with these incentive cards!
  • iPad Updates: This weekend, your iPad devices should have been updated to the newest iOS. Please remember that this means your students will have access to “dark mode.” Exciting news though, with the update, we are able to disable private browsing mode!! 🙂
