school days

Pirate Booty
Welcome back to school! It's going to be a great year! If you are new to Star Academy, welcome aboard our pirate ship! I'm looking forward to seeking treasure and celebrating with you all! This blog will be posted weekly- every Sunday, usually, and it will include important dates and details, a little message at the top (Pirate Booty!). I usually try to include something to think about or something to inspire. Starting next week, I'll include things I loved around school. You will also usually find a tech tip or two. Please take a minute to subscribe to this blog in the box to the right- that way you'll receive any new posts via email as soon as they are posted. Feel free to leave a comment as well! Have a great week!

Here's a post from Michael Linsin about setting the tone the first day of school. Enjoy!
