Welcome Back!

We have fantastic new computers in the teachers room! All three machines have updated versions of software applications and completely clean hard drives. We have many people to thank for this, primarily the IT department - please thank them if you see them. In order to keep these computers moving fast and efficiently, the hard drives will be wiped clean at the end of every day. Anything you want saved should either go on a portable drive or be emailed to your personal account.

We'll have one professional development opportunity in the Media Center this term, on Thursday 9/23 and Friday, 9/24 from 1:00 - 2:00pm. We'll explore a few of the many and varied resources the New York Times provides for teachers, for both the online and print editions of the paper. We'll also examine the possibility of getting copies of POV documentaries directly from the organization and building lessons around them. A sample of their fascinating work is in the video below.
