Introducing Flocabulary!

"Flocabulary is a learning program for all grades that uses educational hip-hop music to engage students and increase achievement across the curriculum."

Many of your classes enjoyed a Flocabulary video as part of Digital Citizenship week. ATES now has a 45-day trial membership to Flocabulary. You can access thousands of engaging educational videos and hip-hop songs to energize your class and reinforce concepts. Click here to join the trial. If enough teachers sign up, we can earn up to two extra weeks to try it out. Check it out while it is available!

iPad Calendar is Available!

There is now a calendar available for signing out the iPads. You can find it in the public folders in Outlook. The iPads are housed in room 213, so please email Ms. Sinclair in advance if you would like support in moving the cart to your classroom. See below for a helpful video about signing out carts.
