The lights are out, the students are gone, and except for the construction going on outside our west wing classrooms, it’s a quiet countdown to tomorrow–last day of school for teachers in our district. For some of you, vacation has already begun; for us, with the benefit of winter snow days, we are just ending later. With vacation barely begun for all of us, why should we get so excited about summer school? Simple: it’s the DEN’s summer school, with an action-packed exciting agenda for four weeks, each with a learning theme. It’s a carefully planned syllabus, with dual platform applications, as well as apps for Macs and PCs. So, tell a colleague, tell a teacher, tell an IT, tell a friend, invite your administrators, and join us everyday at 11 AM ET for summer school with the DEN.
