View our Flipgrid!
Flipgrid is a program/app that allows short video uploads. Some teachers use this for assignments but we used it to share information about Pershing. Hear from teachers, students, and explore the school. This is super fun way to learn more about Pershing. Use your child’s school ID to log in with google or your personal account.
