Resources for Students
Moby Max - Your student may have a login to this site; if s/he was in my class last year, then his/her login is still valid. Students can earn game time practicing and improving their skills in Reading, Writing, and Math. If your student had a log in previously, it should still be valid; if it doesn't work or your student doesn't remember how to log in, please contact me. If your student is having difficulty logging in, be sure that your student is choosing the right Century Middle School from the school list (watch the location).
If your student is provided with Special Education services, but does not have a login, and you would like your student to have access to Moby Max, please contact me via the website contact form, or directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
