Welcome back, Chagrin!

So, we've got an Innovation Center now....How will this impact my children?
Find out at the PTO Forum Meeting:  Wednesday, September 14, 7:30 - 9:00 PM
PTO members and district residents are invited to join the Chagrin Falls Education Foundation donors at the end of their meeting to tour and learn about the Innovation Center. The forum will be an  interactive session based on technology.  You will be able to ask questions, but some topics may include:

  • Infinite Campus:  Understanding GPA and other report types for high school students.  How parents can follow their child's progress in grades K - 6.
  • The balance between technology in the classroom to technology in Encore; understanding the differences, the overlaps, and how we can support that at home.
  • How are Gurney and CFIS students being prepped for and exposed to the Innovation Center. Are there opportunities for them to use some of the features of the center while not being on the MS/HS campus? 

Fall is around the corner and lots of exciting things are happening in the district!  Here's what you should know:
