The September 25 PTO Spotlight Meeting had some great information about the various technology used at Clear Springs (and Minnetonka as a whole district)!
Ms. Miley, our Media Specialist, gave an overview of the tools the kids use and discussed which ones are available to parents. She and our PTO Presidents put together the cheat-sheet below to help you STAY CONNECTED with the school, district, and other parents!
LET’S TACKLE CANCER!
It’s Homecoming Week in the Minnetonka Schools and we’re teaming up with the Minnesota High School Football Coaches Association to raise money for the Randy Shaver Research and Community Fund!
All this week, we’re collecting donations in classrooms. All six Minnetonka elementary schools are participating. The classroom from each school with the most donations will win a Tackle Cancer autographed football and other Tackle Cancer items.
Here’s a Tackle Cancer video to play for your students: https://youtu.be/2NIFMtZd634z
