TK / KINDERGARTEN ENROLLMENT
Enrollment for the 2017 -18 school year begins on May 2.  The appointment calendar will be available on our website mid-April.  Further information on enrollment requirements may be found on the PUD website by clicking on the ENROLLMENT tab.  Kindergarten students will need to have immunizations up to date, a signed CHDP form by your physician and an Oral Health report signed by a dentist.  This is a great time to make those appointments!
 
FOREIGN LANGUAGE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  (FLES)
Adobe Bluff’s is proud to offer the FLES program for the 2017-18 school year.  If you are interested, please contact Adobe Bluffs for more information.
 
TYPING AGENT
3rd – 5th graders will be participating in the Smarter Balanced assessments in April.  They would benefit greatly from enhanced typing skills!  Students log in through their MyPlan with their ID and Password.  From the Dashboard, click on Typing Agent; students will be taken to their next lesson or where they left off in their session.
To make the most of Typing Agent make sure your student uses the home row keys:  ASDF JKL; They should sit up straight; have their feet flat on the floor, their body centered in front of the computer, fingers curved and wrists low.
Focus on accuracy!  This is the key to successful and efficient keyboarding.  Efficiency, which turns to speed is the goal and can only be attained with proper technique.  And remember, MAKE IT FUN!  Celebrate time spent practicing, improved accuracy and efficiency!
