It has been a while since a new blog post has been written. All NPS staff reported today (Aug. 26) for the opening session. Certainly when a new school year starts there are several items that need to be addressed with the changes in staff, paperwork, etc. One of the new items for consideration is that of the newly installed classroom AV systems. While installation of all of the items is not entirely complete, NPS teachers will be learning about how to use the new technology present in their classrooms and sharing ideas to use technology to leverage high levels of student learning.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) we do have Open Houses at the Vera Wilsie Elementary, Velma Matson Elementary, and Middle School. Ideally, it would have been nice for all of the equipment to be completely installed and functional so that parents could see what is available for teachers and students in classroom AV. It is still the goal to have all new equipment up and running by Sept. 3, which is the first day for students. The contractors are working diligently to try to make this happen.
One other piece of information is that NPS has established a district Facebook page. The goal is to publish updates to the Facebook page in addition to the district Twitter page. Multiple modes of communication can help us keep parents and community members informed of the happenings at NPS. The links are included below.
Here’s to a great 2013-2014 at NPS!
