    Home Learning Note from Mrs. Donovan:

    I hope this message finds you well. I'm so glad you found time to visit the Technology Specials page for CHES. During this time of huge transition, I've been asked not to start new projects or new learning, but rather to focus on review of core concepts. 

    For 1st through 5th grade, students can focus on learning to Touch Type with Typing Club and learning the basics of computer programming with  At the top of each grade level page, there is a "PRACTICE" section, that has links to programs that all students have used before in Technology Specials.  If you have any trouble logging in, please feel free to reach out via email.  All 2nd through 5th grade students also have a Google Classroom account and can communicate with me through those pages. 

    In addition, all students Kinder through 5th grade can log into ClassLink for access to literacy, math, science, and social studies resources. More information can be found on the HCISD Home Learning page.
