Your classroom teacher website comes with the following 5 pages built for you:

  • Photo Gallery (classroom pictures or could be deleted if you use another source)
  • Useful Links (maybe rename this page and use for your classroom newsletters or delete it)
  • Contact Me (we will delete this page as your families will already know how to reach you by email)

Requirements from Brian ~
  • Philosophy of your classroom (goals for your classroom include on your main page)
  • Newsletters
  • List of teachers in your classroom - along with a brief bio of lead teacher (include on your main page)

Below are directions on how to

  • Delete/Archive a page

  • Editing a page - review some of the basic word-processing tools

  • Hiding pages or selections....

  • Create an account on the Sharp School customer support website - great reference resource and live chat for help!

How do you delete a page? First we must archive the page - archived pages cannot be seen by the public or by the owner of the website. Then if you really want to delete it ~ you can.

So lets begin by go to the main page of your classroom website;
To Archive a Page:
  • hover your mouse over "Page Properties"
  • scroll down and click on "Manage Sub-Pages"
  • Select "Page Status"
  • in the new window, click in the square next to "Contact Me" then select Archive

To Delete a Page:
  • Once the page has been archived
  • hover over "Page Properties"
  • scroll down and click on Archived Sub-Pages
  • in the new window - click on the "X" button next to the sub-page you wish to delete (Contact Me).

Your "Contact Me" page should now be gone! Repeat this step for any page that you'd like to archive or delete.


You will see the standard word-processing tool bar across the top of your editing window; add content
