Grades 3-8 are receiving their usernames and passwords for Mathletics. They can access this exciting site from any computer, so ask to see it. The students are very excited about this.
In order to fully utilize the audio function of the computers, the lab, the sites, and the programs each student should have his or her own headset. This headset, with a standard plug, should be a simple, inexpensive one and there are many versions available, even in a 99Cent store. The earbud versions are often difficult for many of the younger students so try them out before you send them into school. The headset should be labeled with the student’s name and placed in a larger zip lock bag. If you prefer, you can send $4.00 in an envelope with the student’s name and grade on it and I will get one for him or her.
If you have any questions, please, do not hesitate to ask.
All 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students have received HCJCA Google accounts. The rules and regulations, as well as the responsibilities, concerning these accounts have bees discussed with them. Please ask your child(ren) to share this exciting experience with you.
