Every child has access to a Schoology account. While it is currently being used by our virtual learners, it is also a great resource for traditional students. Traditional students are not required to complete any assignments through schoology ,but they are welcome to do them for extra practice. There are also video lessons they can watch to review.

Students have their username and password on their lunch tag lanyard. Thanks for all your help and support at home! 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't forget students can also practice on I-Ready and IXl. :)
