What a Day We Had - Grand Parent's & Special Person's Day
New Keyboarding Program & Challenge
Dear Parents and Students:
The URL is https://nmusd.typingclub.com
Starting in early March, we will have our first Keyboard Challenge so there is plenty of time to get involved and practice.
Why keyboarding, you ask? As you know, Common Core and Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAs) are fast approaching. Our students need to be prepared with both keyboarding and technology skills not only for their futures in High School and College, but also for their current school work. To find out more about Common Core and SBAs or see a sample question, please visit http://www.smarterbalanced.org/parents-students/ Or http://sampleitems.smarterbalanced.org/itempreview/sbac/ELA.htm
There will be more information to follow regarding the specifics of the Keyboarding Challenge. In the meantime, start typing!
