What is Wixie? Similar to the application Pixie that students have been using in technology class for the past few years, Wixie is a powerful digital tool that allows students to create art work, drawings, stories, slideshows, media, recordings and more from any device! What makes Wixie unique and exciting is HCPSS has purchased accounts for students to use at school AND home!!!! Students will receive papers this coming week with login information. (Their login is the same username and password they login to the computers at school with. Domain:hcpss). Check out the website to learn more and email us if questions. https://hcpss.wixie.com/
