Welcome Back to another GREAT Year!

Welcome back everyone!  So excited to start another great year with my students at SMLS.  The last week we have been learning/reviewing our expectations and the procedures for the computer lab.  We have been discussing LARK.  When using the computers the students are told to ask themselves...
L - Is it Legal?
A - Is is Appropriate?
R - Is it Respectful and Responsible?
K - Is it Kind?

By asking these questions students can help themselves and their classmates be good digital citizens.  We will be discussing digital citizenship a lot this year because it is an integral part of being a responsible computer user.

We are also trying out the new Google Classroom.  This is a great learning management system that allows teachers to distribute assignments and students to turn them in all online.  It also provides a safe environment for classroom discussion and for students to ask and answer each other's questions.  Can't wait to see all the new features this new tool brings this school year!
