September


Students,
Well, it's September and the school year is in full swing. We hope you are working daily on your VLA lessons in order to complete them by the deadline given to you by your school district.  Remember to email your teachers if you have questions as you are working. They are there to help you. Also remember to save as you complete each question. This ensures that you don't lose any work if, perhaps, the power were to go out or  you walk away from your computer for an extended length of time.

If you are interested, we have new courses. These include courses on gaming, such as Gaming Through the Ages. Contact your school district for more information.

Have a great school year!
