Bucs Unite to Fight Bullying in School!

How cool!  Kids are tweeting their posters about cyberbullying.  Mrs. Moncus’ students have made some really good posters.  So glad to see our students take the lead in stopping cyberbullying.

Involve your students, too. ##hhsbucsunite

I am always looking for great organizational tips. This past weekend while at HHS for the SAT, I flipped through the October/November edition of Working Mother magazine. The magazine had an interesting article entitled "Appy-y Helpers" with some apps that could be useful to teachers with busy lives. I have shared some of these below.

Weather Clock Free- Wake up on time and know what to wear for the weather with this double-featured app. The background reflects real-time outdoor conditions, while rise-and-shine sounds awaken you (Free @ iTunes.com)

Voice Secretary- Voice-record you own reminders and have them recited at a set time. You can also email audio messages, back up files and repeat schedules. It's a virtual assistant in your phone ($4.00 iTunes.com)

Remember the Milk- If you are highly dependent on lists to get through the day, this app's for you. Prioritize, set time estimates and get reminders via email. Never forget anything again (free, iTunes.com)

Sticky Note with Alarms and Bump Sharing: Email notes, customize their look, and view them without unlocking your screen.  "Bump" devices to share stickers to your iPhone or iTouch ($1.00 for Bump Function, iTunes.com)
