A Commitment to Digital Learning

A Principal's Reflections

New Milford High School proudly joined 37 states, 15,000 teachers, and over 2 million students on February 1 for the inaugural Digital Learning Day.

Below I have summarized some of the pre-planned activities that my teachers planned and had their students engaged in on Digital Learning Day.
