Library Transition:

We have the opportunity to apply for an $8,000 grant from the District to transition the Library or other campus space into a “maker space” which Teresa would facilitate.As a result, we are considering returning to every other week library schedules. With the addition of the new classroom libraries, it seems as though we may be less reliant on weekly visits. Please share any feedback that you have with me regarding a change to the library schedule or your interest in being a part of the “maker space” design.  

Imagine Learning:

Your students may log into Imagine Learning TODAY in your classrooms. All Emory students are entered.

Imagine Learning recommends that students access IL for 100 minutes per week to maximize the program benefits.

Teacher 1 Hour Prep/Planning Schedule- begins this week:
