iPad Distribution - Grade 9 - August 21, 2014
Dear Parents,

The Auburn Public Schools will hold the iPad Distributions for all 8th and 9th graders on the following dates.

9th Grade
August 21st, 2014 from 4 – 8 p.m. at Auburn High School

8th Grade 
August 25th from 6-8 at Auburn Middle School
August 28th from 6-8 at Auburn Middle School

We are sure you and your students are excited to receive your
iPads. In order to facilitate a smooth distribution we wanted to provide some preliminary information to you. Please take the time to read over the following information, complete the required forms, and create and activate an Apple ID. Having these crucial pieces of information in place will allow us to ensure a quick and frustration free distribution of your iPad.

What you need before you arrive to pick up your iPad

• Completed Student / Parent Agreement http://goo.gl/seRy50.
• Completed Insurance Agreement http://goo.gl/wut4D2.
• $40.00 Insurance Fee made payable to Auburn Public Schools.
• Activated Apple ID for student – To create an Apple ID visit https://appleid.apple.com/account . You can view these instructions for how to create an Apple ID without a credit card at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2534 . Please be sure you verify and login to an iTunes store or Apple App store prior to picking up your iPad. This will facilitate the setup of the iPad. We suggest you create an Apple ID separate from a personal ID to ensure personal data does not flow to the iPad. We encourage you to use your student’s District e-mail address to setup the account.

* Your student’s Google E-mail username is: first initial+last name+year of graduation @auburn.k12.ma.us(jdoe18@auburn.k12.ma.us).

** Your student’s Google password has been reset to Rockets123.

At the Distribution

• Turn in both forms and Insurance Fee.
• You will receive an iPad Air 16 Gig, Cover, Charging Block, and USB cable.
• Move to setup area where staff will be available to help with proper setup of iPad and enrollment in our management system. This will require students know their network login and Apple ID and password.
• Once setup process is completed District provided Apps will begin to download to iPad.

After Distribution
• Students can familiarize themselves with District provided Apps and the iPad.
• They should bring their fully charged iPad to school with them on the first day of school.

ONE BOOK-ONE SCHOOL



Front Cover


'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'

Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.
