When and Where with Calendar Subscriptions

It’s always a good thing to know what’s happening on your school’s campus. Like most high schools, mine is no different I’m certain – with a flurry of activity that would make it difficult for most to keep every event in check. Hence, the school calendar – the one that’s likely maintained by a campus secretary. The one that’s probably on the web page – the one that has every A/B Day marked; every field trip; every district, state, and national testing date; every club meeting…

Yes that one.

The one that teachers and staff would tirelessly update to the their own personal calendar, so they could better plan and prepare throughout the entire year?

Yes that one.

Add the Dubiski Calendar to Your Phone

If your school’s host website gives you the option like Schoolwires does, and if THAT web calendar is THE calendar for the campus, work smarter by adding the iCal feed to your Outlook calendar and mobile devices. Here’s how our teachers took advantage with Microsoft Outlook  2013 for Windows and 2011 for Mac.

First Week’s a Wrap!

All of the back-to-school anticipation has come to a close. The first week of school was full of anticipation, laughter, surprises, and as usual – not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything that needed to get done. What else is new, right? Despite it all, this year marks number 21 for me, and it’s on pace to be the best year yet!

New adventures are around the corner as Dubiski welcomed another GPISD choice school to its campus – The School for the Highly Gifted. Imagine 40+ 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders sharing the same building with high school students. Needless to say the dynamics have changed, and it’s going to be an interesting year. I can’t wait to work with these little ones; I heard stories of a 5-year-old working derivatives . . . really??? Seeing these elementary maker space classrooms is quite refreshing, and since they’re down the hall from my office, I get to experience them everyday!

My Ladybug . . .

My niece started kindergarten this year, so I’ll also be blogging about her learning adventures from time to time. She’s fascinating; and remembers EVERYTHING. As long as she’s not filled with erroneous information, she’ll be good to go. 

It’s time to rock!
