LIFE CUBBY: We have very exciting news! Our TLC Campus is launching a powerful NEW digital documentation system called "LifeCubby!" LifeCubby allows our school to go paperless with reports, portfolios (including photos/videos), communications and skill assessments. Your parent account may be accessed from any computer or mobile device. Please see your child's teacher to sign up for LifeCubby. Then watch for an email from "LifeCubby" containing a link to your account as well as your password. Your username will be your email address, and your password will be assigned, but you can change it. Look for LifeCubby Family App in Google play or Apple App Store. You can also access your account online at the LifeCubby website http://www.lifecubby.me. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions as we transition to a more paperless school with improved communications.
