Tech Tip of the Week
8th – 12th grade students, be on the lookout for spam! This isn’t the canned meat, but undeliverable emails landing in your school inbox. Spammers use your email to send out advertisements, phishing, and malware. If you notice a lot of undeliverable emails in your inbox, chances are you have a lot of mail in your sent box, too. See Mrs. DelMonte as soon as possible to secure your email.
Decoding Dyslexia Monthly Meeting
