Bring Your Own Device

Here within YPS, we are beginning to have internal discussions on the pros and cons of having students bring their own devices to our classrooms. For example, allowing students to use their smart phones in class as a research tool. Many districts are going in this direction and we are beginning to gather thoughts on this important topic. Below is a link to a great blog that outlines additional thoughts on this topic.

Gone but not forgotten

Tony Howe was a wonderful husband, father, and volunteer that passed away on January 25th. Though he has now been gone for over five months, he is not forgotten. Life has moved on but Tony will always be with many people that he touched. There is "Tony Howe Memorial Golf Tournament" at the York Country Club on Sunday, September 2nd. If you're interested in playing in it, helping sponsor it, or in volunteering in any way, please let me know. It is one small way that we can keep Tony's memories alive for those that continue to miss him deeply.
