Keyboarding for Academic Success

Sixth grade students are enrolled in the Typing Club online program to develop necessary keyboarding skills.  Although this is a self-paced course of study, students are expected to keyboard a minimum of 30 minutes per week outside of the school day.  This is the estimated practice time needed to finish the keyboarding course during the year.  Students who keyboard less than 30 minutes per week and are thus not advancing through the program in a timely manner, are spending part of their lunch break keyboarding to catch up.

Upgrades to District Voicemail System

On November 19, the school district switched over to a new voicemail system. During the switch, there is a brief period of time that any calls left at our district schools/offices may not have been received. If you called and left a voicemail message with any of our schools or district buildings between the time offices closed (after 3:30 p.m.) and 7 p.m. on Thursday November 19, and you haven’t received a return call, please call again.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We appreciate your understanding and continued support of our students.
