This year, students divisionwide will have access to Adobe Spark. Adobe Spark lets students create original media content such as posters, images, websites, and videos in exciting and intuitive ways. Stay tuned for more information as we roll it out.

Be on the Lookout for O365 Logins

With our students accessing applications from Clever with their O365 logins more and more, it is important that parents know their child's login information. Fifth grade parents will want to have it on hand when their children go to middle school as well, if they want to log into StudentVUE to see their schedules. Students will set their O365 passwords in September, starting with grades 2-5 in the first 2-3 weeks, then moving to K-1 after that. Please be on the lookout for an O365 letter to come home with your child's login information, and keep that letter in a safe place for the year.

PWCS students in grades 1, 2, 3, AND NOW 4 have access to Wixie, the online version of Pixie, the exciting creativity software! With access to Wixie, student creations will save automatically and instantaneously, and they can work on them from any PC, Mac, iPad, Chromebook, or Android tablet that is connected to the internet. You can download the apps for the iPad andAndroid for free. 

You can access Wixie through Clever, using your child's Office 365 login (your child's computer login followed by and their unique password).

This is one of my personal favorite programs to use with elementary school students!

This year, most of our student applications are accessible through Clever, an application that allows our students logged in at school access to the applications without additional logins. To access Clever at home, you can follow the link from the student tab of the website and choose log in with Office 365. Your child should use their Office 365 login (student computer login followed by and unique computer password.

Useful Links

Clever - This is where you can access the websites that Piney Branch students use. MyON is ONLY accessible through Clever (don't use the app!!), and several other applications will log them in directly through Clever. 

Common Sense Media
-- Gives educators, parents, and children information to guide them in using technology safely and positively. As a parent, this is my go-to when I want resources to make an informed decision about what is appropriate for my child.
