Mrs. J Recommends: This section is a collection of digital resources, apps, or other tools that have helped me in my own education. Both parents and students should please take a look and download the first three for use at home and in class. August - Let's keep in good touch! Click here to learn about the Remind app, then sign up! We will use this app to communicate on a daily basis. September - Worried about your teenager's ability to focus? Or, your own? It is important that students learn how to manage digital distraction. If there are issues with digital discipline or focus, we will be addressing them through mindfulness, both in the classroom, and for homework. Learn about it here, then try Headspace October - Spaced Repetition is a great way to learn.
