The primary purpose of the Web site for D. A. Ferguson Middle School in Taber, Alberta, Canada is to provide information for parents and students. Resources include links for homework help and curriculum-related Websites as well as school news.
How to use the site:
The site incorporates several nice features. Week-at-a-Glance lists homework assignments for each grade level. The School Calendar and DAF Year-at-a-Glance spotlight school activities by the month and year. Students also use the site to reach Web sites recommended by their teachers and/or to play online educational games. Parents visit the site to view examples of student work and photos taken at various events, and to review school information. Four of the teachers recently began blogging about classroom events to keep parents even better informed. The blogs are accessible from the Home page.
