*We now have a second set of doors at the Main Entrance on Levans Road, just like all of the other Parkland Schools!  We have placed a desk in between the doors so parents can drop off forgotten lunches, instruments, homework, sneakers, birthday treats, etc.  The desk will have sticky notes and pencils for you to write your child’s name and teacher.  If your child forgets something and you need to drop it off, please press the outside buzzer and you will be granted access to that area, where you can drop off the item.  If your child is late, or if you are picking up your child early for an appointment, you will still need to come into the office to sign him/her in and/or out.

BrightBytes Technology Survey

Our district will be partnering with BrightBytes, an educational software company, so that we can learn more about our schools’ technology use for student learning. Our goal is to gather data on technology access and skills, and on our district’s technology environment, in order to understand the connection between technology use and student achievement. To gain these insights, we must provide BrightBytes with a complete picture of technology use at school and at home within our district. We will be asking  students, teachers, administrators and parents to participate in the project to help us gather this data. Your participation is important to us and will make the difference between having a complete versus a limited understanding of our district’s technology use. The web site address for the survey is http://www.Bbyt.es and the code for each school is located in this post.  Click the Read More button to access the codes or click here.

Thank you for your assistance!  [Read more…]
