Hello, ARE Jaguars!

I want to encourage all of our students to read at least twenty minutes each day. During the time of school closure you can still access ebooks through the SORA app from your Launchpad/Classlink. if you need a tutorial, checkout this link:  Further instructions are on Class Dojo. You can also click on the Overdrive tab at the left of this page. There are also links to video Read Alouds on the Online Read Alouds tab to the left of this page.

In the interest of public health, Henry County Public Library System is closed until further notice.  During this time fines will not accrue.  Some resources are still available online with your library card.  For the complete list, follow the link below. Please check out the tabs to the left that offer lots of free resources. Tumblebooks especially offers free ebooks including books in Spanish and graphic novels as well as the usual read alongs.

The HCS Technology Department created this site: which includes a collection of resources to help support teachers, students, and parents plan for continued learning during this extended school closure.

Also, check out the Learn to Code tab on this left of this website. It will take you to lots of places you can practice coding whether you are a beginner or advanced coder.  You can have hours of fun coding while you are learning and practicing a career skill! The Free Distance Learning tab has lots of resources for learning and fun.
