Skills Agenda in Class Notes and Handouts  

Please look under "Class Notes and Handouts" for the 2016-2017 Skills Agenda.


Using Google Classroom for Student/Parent Announcements  

I use google classroom for students, so I update it more than this website. I will try to make dual announcements on both sites, but the most current will be the google.classroom.
