Welcome to the New Year! Hope your holidays were enjoyable and shared with those you hold dear.

K: Students will continue the process of logging onto the CPSD computer system. In addition to entering their 6-digit student number into the User Name section of the login box, Kinders will be introduced to the Password – Panther6. They will use the “shift” key to create the capital letter P, followed by the rest of the letters and the number six.
A keyboard printout will go home with students so that they may practice the login process.

A second site is Typetastic; Typetastic; https://typetastic.com/
