Fall Update (from Parent Portal classic site 10/4/16)

The school year is well underway, classrooms and schools are busy with activities and our libraries and labs are in full swing as well.  Just recently we welcomed Mrs. Jackie Laredo to Bolin's library and lab.  It was a domino type effect.  When we lost Mrs. Tabitha Squires in CJHS' library, then Mrs. Kristin Westbrook (previously of Bolin) took her position!  That left an opening for Mrs. Laredo at Bolin.

Fall ColorsThe tech team and administrators have been busy planning the 1 to 1 Chromebook initiative for 8th graders at CJHS.  A parent informational meeting is being planned.  The 8th grade teachers and I have been meeting regularly as I train them in a variety of Chromebook and Google topics.  They are in the process of creating lessons integrating the Chromebooks and Google into their classrooms as well.  The fact that CJHS already has four Chromebook carts that are constantly in demand for classroom use is making the transition to 1 to 1 much smoother.  The 6th and 7th graders will benefit by having one less grade level signing up to use those four Chromebook carts.  That means more access to technology for the entire school!
