Red A Day

Detention with Mr. Green/210



We will be removing iMovie on many iPads (all freshman and some upper classmen)  in the next few days in order to run an important update. All students should back up any iMovie project right away to their camera roll and then plan to import them back to iMovie when we have finished the update. Any unsaved work will be lost in iMovie.
