Our district provides emails to all middle school and high school students. We also provide emails to elementary students as needed. These emails are hosted by Google Gmail but are monitored and filtered through a third party called Gaggle. Gaggle provides administration the ability to recover student’s emails and filters all email traffic. Policy violations are reviewed in person by Gaggle and any email of concern is forwarded to school administration for review.
Reading Eggs makes learning to read interesting and engaging for kids, with great online reading games and activities.
And it really works! Children love the games, songs, golden eggs and other rewards which, along with feeling proud of their reading, really motivate children to keep exploring and learning.
