Technically, who is smarter?
Have you and your child discussed who is smarter? We would like to help you settle this. Familes are invited to attend our spring parent involvement event on Thursday, March 26 from 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Classical Center at Vial. It will be a fun evening of activities, technology, lessons and challenges. Are you smarter than your student? Come and find out.
Digital Learning Day
We will be celebrating techology and many of its educational applications at the Classical Center at Vial this week! Ask your child about what fun new website or app s/he was able to use. Each grade level will be using different tools and will be creating some interesting projects. Check out each grade level webpage for details about what your child will be doing.
Check out the Discovery Education Techbook
What is the Discovery Education Techbook? It is a digital textbook that offers students access to virtual labs, digital explorations, e-book reading passages, and video segments to support science content at each grade level. The Discovery Education Techbook also has homework help and other resources and games for all subject areas and can be accessed using their login info. Students can log in using their lunch number and their computer password.
Explore a new galaxy
Have you heard about the new galaxy just discovered at the Classical Center at Vial? Using an iPad or a computer, students have been actively engaged in its exploration. Students can practice math and reading skills at school and at home using this new resource. Each student has his/her own log in for probing this Education Galaxy. If you have questions about this resource or the student log in, please contact your child's teacher.
