Although it is not the favorite of the students, we have had to do a lot of online testing of the students this week. We have started to use a new math testing website that we are very happy with.

At the beginning of each school year I like to review the different areas of Internet Safety. One of the best resources that I have found is Professor Garfield, he does a great job with age-appropriate content that helps our students understand the points of Internet safety. Please talk to your child about what they are learning about Internet safety.
