Important Information from TIMS Technical Services

Please remember to power off all computers, monitors, and printer equipment before you leave for Thanksgiving break. Even though we have a nightly shutdown procedure in place, we want to ensure all electronic equipment is powered off over the next. This also includes any general purpose labs and student machines in classrooms.

When you return on Monday, Nov. 28, your computer may be a little slow from being off for several days - please allow it to run a virus scan and install any missing updates.

We hope you enjoy your break!

Congratulations ...

Congratulations to Hannah DeArmond, Binion Elementary second-grade teacher, for winning an all-expense paid trip to New York City for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. She entered a contest sponsored by the company that owns the Elf on a Shelf products. DeArmond wrote an essay about how she brings the Christmas spirit to her classroom. She wrote about how "Elfis" has come to her classroom the past three years, the second-grade Whobilation, the soldier the grade level adopts and sends a handprint U.S. flag, and the ways she incorporates the diverse holidays near Christmas, such as Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Los Posadas.

The Communications Department publishes the employee newsletter "e-nlightened" each week so staff can keep in touch with what is going on across the district. E-mail your pictures and a brief description to Communications and we will include them as space permits.
