It is very important to learn to use the computer keyboard correctly. At Bancroft, students are setting out to learn to type quickly and accurately without looking at their fingers. Even students that don't take computer classes can learn this at home! There are many free keyboarding websites and games. The important thing is that you learn where to put your fingers and follow the directions on the websites.
Typing Web: Create a free account and learn to type from the beginning.
Free Typing Games: Keep your fingers in the home row when you play games!
Nitro Type: Competitive Keyboarding for the advanced typist. Be sure to type correctly!
Final Yearbook Pre-Sale: The final pre-sale for yearbooks is Wednesday, March 12. This is the last pre-sale for the year. Reserve your copy during lunch time at the outside attendance windows. This will be the One and Only Day you will be able to buy the yearbook at the low price of $30.00 (cash only). Yearbook quantities are ordered based on the pre-sales for the year. We cannot guarantee you will get a yearbook unless you pre-order. Last year we ran out so be sure to reserve your copy now. ~ Yearbook Committee
