Common Sense Media Articles
Teachers are constantly sharing the best ways for students to stay safe online. At Indian Creek Schools, we have many classes and sessions dedicated to helping students make the best decisions online. We use Common Sense Media's digital citizenship curriculum to teach our students best practices. We want parents to have the easiest access to articles written for them by the leader in digital citizenship for students. If you are a guardian, please be sure to check out https://www.commonsensemedia.org/ to read ratings on popular movies, apps and receive all around good tips to keep your students safe online!

Indiana Musicians Website
Our music teacher at Indian Creek Intermediate School, Rich Dowell, took his tech skills to the next level. After a training on Google Sites, he decided to make a beautiful, in depth website about musicians from across Indiana. The website is split up by music genres and holds bios for hundreds of Hoosier musicians. We'd love to see this website shared and used in classrooms all over Indiana! Please feel free to take a look!

Teacher Chromebook Cases
If you are interested in purchasing your own case for your Chromebook, I have link to a relatively inexpensive case that will fit your NHJ teacher-issued device. It is more decorative than it is for actual protection, however, it is a good quality product that a few teachers are currently using. If you are not a fan of these, you can begin your own search. Just make sure you are looking for a 2017 11.6" Dell Chromebook 11 3189 Series 2-in-1 Laptop. Click here for link to Amazon
