Descriptions of the Websites and Apps Our Teachers Most Frequently Use
We know that it can be overwhelming to understand and manage all of the different technology programs our teachers are using. Some of the websites and apps we use are school-wide, meaning all teachers use them, but others are up to each teacher. We have created a new page on our website to help you through this. The page gives a list of most of the programs our teachers use and a brief description of each. You can find it by clicking on the "Parents" section in the top purple area of the page and then clicking on "Technology."
