Enrichment Schedule Reminder

Tuesday Night Technology Survey
Good evening Wildcat families,
We've initiated a series of Tuesday Night Technology (TNT) sessions here at Wellington this year to talk about technology issues that are important in education in this day and age. Our first session covered some discussion of the use of technology in assessment and was quite interesting. For our next evenings, we'd love to get your opinion on topics or specific programs/devices that you'd be interested in getting more information about. Below is a link to a very SHORT survey. Please take just a moment and give us your thoughts and we'll plan our TNT nights based on what we hear from you along with things we think you might find intriguing. Thanks so much for sharing. Robin Macke, Ph.D., Principal
