You can reserve your spot by signing up online: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=DG566I7Aska7c0XdByuqM-0kQe-mgAFCmgV5bIbDBI5UMlZQWkpIMk9DWFZaVzExMjFFRENURThCSy4u

  • SmartyAnts: There are two apps for SmartyAnts – one is for K&1 and the other is for 2nd and up. We will be pushing out the 2nd & up apps to all grade levels using SmartyAnts.
  • Saving Website to Homescreen: we have had a lot of issues with accessing online programs like Benchmark. In order to help resolve this, we recommend having students save the website to their homescreen by:
    • 1. Open the webiste on your web browser
    • 2. Click the icon that looks like a rectangle with an up arrow
    • 3. Click “add to home screen”
    • 4. Type in the name of the website
    • 5. Click “add”
  • iPads to Media Center: throughout the day, we get a lot of students coming in for iPad issues. To help us out, especially when we are in classrooms or not in the offices, please only send students with a note describing the problem, their name, your room number, and a class pass

Technology Tips: 

  • iPad location services have been turned on for most devices! This was done during the set up in order to help us locate lost devices. Please make sure that you leave these location services on so that we can track the device in case it goes missing.
  • If you notice that your students safari or web browser has a black bar at the top, this means that they are in privacy mode. This will stop their browsing history from being tracked. Please have a conversation with your students if you saw this happening.
  • MacBooks: please note that the new MacBooks are very fragile! The screens are easily cracked, so we highly recommend purchasing a cover or a case to keep your MacBook from being damaged. Please make sure that you are cautious to not close anything inside of the MacBook and to keep liquids away from the computer. According to the staff Acceptable Use Policy, teachers are responsible for any damage caused to the device. We highly recommend purchasing the $50 insurance; please see the Staff AUP for more information!
