WHMS App Corner for Parents!

With the emphasis on technology these days and the prevalence of smart phones and tablet computers we thought it would be helpful to provide you with some “apps” (applications for smart phones/tablets) that may help your student with concepts they are learning, provide extra help in a particular subject, inform you, or might just be a fun academic game. These can all be found in the iTunes store. Check to see if you can find them in your Android market place too!
