- I will listen and follow the directions of my parents, teachers, support staff, after-school staff and school administrators with regards to my technology and Internet use.
Thank you for continuing to clear clutter, post a daily schedule, and current student work with a stated purpose/objective and specific teacher feedback. For pictures from my tour of Woodcrest Elementary and examples of student work with feedback and objectives, please see here.
