Miss These Deadlines Miss A lot!

Here are the important winter deadlines you don’t want to miss! 

Classworks Digital Learning Grant
98% of the new teachers who were trained to use Classworks in October said they were ‘excited and ready to get started’ after the sessions. Tell us what kind of technology you need to make Classworks part of your weekly instruction.

Apply for Classworks Digital Learning Grant and we can help make it happen! Three teachers will be awarded $2,500 each for classroom technology!

"Thank you so much for blessing our classroom with amazing goodies! With the Classworks Digital Learning Grant, I was able to set up literacy centers in my classroom. My students now have access to iPads and Kindles which we use during reading blocks. They can access Classworks Integrated Reading paired passages and work on reading comprehension during center time." Elizabeth Lyles Shores, 3rd Grade Teacher, Bearfield Primary School
Classworks Winter Professional Development
Registration is filling up quickly! We’re partnering with ACT Aspire, NWEA, and Renaissance to offer sessions in five cities.
