Partnering for Success

Dragon Lair Cafe -


We have been offering workshops for families to better navigate the this virtual learning environment, as well as offering topics we believe will be beneficial to families as a resource.  Our next Dragon Lair Cafe will be live streamed at 6:00 PM, on March 30th. This Edition of our Dragon Lair Cafe will focus on the use of Screencastify on student chromebooks and how the tool can be used to, not only submit great videos for class, but for capturing technical difficulties and get tech support.

eCADEMY K8 Social


eCADEMY K8 has staked its claim in the social media worlds of Twitter and YouTube. We are looking forward to taking advantage of both of these platforms to share successes and connect with families.  Our Twitter account will be used as a supplement to the official communications that are sent out to families via Schoolmessenger and Synergy and will never contain critical information shared through these channels.  However, we do hope to Tweet out celebratory notes or helpful reminders for families.  If you don't use Twitter, no worries.  If you do, follow us @ecademyk8 .  

We have also established our channel on YouTube and moved our previous Dragon Lair Cafe videos to this new channel. Please subscribe to our channel and click the notification bell so you will get notified when we go live or when we post new videos or video announcements (coming soon).
