5. new website

 

Just a heads up on this one; our district is switching over to a new provider of teacher websites.  After Christmas Break this page will not be accessible. I do not yet know what my new website address will be.  However, I do know that you will be able to access it through the Howell Schools website, just like now.

I will first have access to it on December 23rd.   Please be patient while I learn how it operates.  Until then I will continue to post on my blog, but I will not be uploading worksheets.  Those can be found on Mr. Deadman's planbook and Mrs. Stanley's website.
