Spring is in the air! And so is another MyOn Challenge! Spending 30-40 minutes each day on MyOn during Spring Break can help your reading comprehension, increase your knowledge, and cure boredom. You can read the Sports Illustrated Final Four while watching March Madness. Or check out one of the many craft books and make something fun.
And did we mention the prizes? The two students with the highest number of minutes read during the challenge will get to go to lunch with Officer Ken....In the Police Car....and you can work the siren!!! Also, the school could win up to $2000! Remember, time only counts while you are actively reading a book, not while you are browsing the library. This contest runs from March 22nd through April 1st. To access MyOn, students will need to go through the SVVSD Clever application. This can be reached through the MyOn link on our homepage, the Ceran Student homepage, or at www.myon.com - at the bottom of the page you will see "Log in with Clever". Or you can just click Here. The students will use their SVVSD user name and password (do not include the @svvsd.org). We have practiced this at school and the students all had the opportunity to make a favorites list.
Please help us by having your child(ren) get on MyON over the break.
New: The MyOn app will now record your minutes that you read offline and upload them when you reconnect to the internet. This makes it even easier to read on that long car trip. The MyOn App is available from the Apple Store and Google Play.
Using a phone or tablet? Due to the district going Single Sign On, your student's login using the myOn app has changed. While online (at school or home) the student must login, in the upper right hand corner in the blue box is a picture of an iPad, click to reveal your students 4 character PIN. Once the myON app is downloaded to your device, there is a screen to add a user, you may have multiple users so each student will need to be added separately using their own personal PIN. Click to add. You will need to enter the school, and your students username, at "password or PIN" you must enter your students 4 character PIN. This is a one time set up that links your student through the Single Sign On allowing your student to read off line and have those minutes counted. Once your student is added to the myOn app. click the lower right hand corner, a list of the students you have added will appear. For your student to login - click your student's name, and enter their username. You will need to have online access to download books to your students account. Once books are downloaded (the limit is 20 books per student) they can read offline and those minutes will be tracked and uploaded the next time the device is connected to the internet. Our contest runs through Monday, so make sure that by Monday evening the device has made an internet connection for tabulation in the reading contest.
