Does Your Computer Have Necessary Updates?

As people obtain new computers, they create documents in microsoft word and excel that can not be opened if you are using an older version of the software.  There is a free download from the microsoft site that will make sure you can open all documents regardless of the version you are using. This has been added at the right side of this page under, "Important Links." Follow the instructions on the page and should you have any problems, please contact Mr. Albaugh at ryan@brownsvilleacademy.com
