If you're wondering why your child has a sudden urge for you to get an iPad it's because all JYJ (certified) staff have iPads!!! Mr. Knott was so kind to make sure that we all had one to use for student and classroom learning. There are also 2 class sets of iPads that teachers can check out to use in their classes. I've been an iPad user for about a year and will say that using it simplifies my planning, reading and how much I use it as a school counselor! For parents that have iPads, I want to share a few parent & kid friendly apps that are great!
