The school district is providing workshops for current 5th grade parents, and 6th, 7th, and 8th grade parents new to the district.
Come out to learn about Wiss21, the district's 1:1 laptop initiative in the middle school. Parents will learn about the hardware, software, tools and online resources your children will be using next year through this 75 minute workshop.
