      Because of some access difficulties students had with the E-book site, the trial period has been extended to November 15! We encourage students to access the True Flix and Groer Encyclopedia on-line. Your input is needed to help us assess if this is a program should be licensed for the entire school year. Other sites will be made available soon as well. Go to http://auth.grolier.com/ and use the log-in groliergo and password wind and http://auth.grolier.com/login/tfx/login.php and use the log-in truflix and password wind to learn more.

Please encourage your child to visit the site and spend some time on it yourself. We want to learn your assessment of it and if it’s a tool that should be continued and  licensed for use at our school during the school year.
