Saber Spotlight: Joni Hopkins

With her interest in backstage production, 9th grader Joni Hopkins was able to help the Henrico Teen Theatre Company over the summer with their production of “The Jungle Book” at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen. She was the Backstage Manager for the production and had a great time working with the performers. Way to go Joni!

Tech Tip of the Week 

The command key is essential to quick Apple short cuts. Hold the command key down and press different letters to do a variety of functions; copying, pasting, printing, quitting, etc. Any programs drop down menus will show the command symbol to reveal the short cuts available.

Installing Test Mode

8th – 12th Grade students should have the Test Mode profile installed on their laptop. If they have not they need to make an appointment to see Mrs. DelMonte as soon as possible. Test Mode is a user profile that provides a ‘clean’ environment for testing. Teachers will have the password for this profile, students will not have this password.
