    I feel the same way!!! I am currently working on building
    my own website and a fellow teacher reccomended using
    Scholastic.com. I use them for book orders, but they also
    have a free website builder. I used it for the first time
    today and it was very very very user friendly. Plus you can
    create a password and user name for your students if you
    want to limit access.
    I was using a different site provided by the district, but I
    found it difficult to navigate. Scholastic takes you
    through step by step and you can be as simple or complicated
    as you want to be.
    I hope this helps, and good luck.
