In addition to the 34 work stations in our Computer Lab, we also have MOBILE technology! Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our auctions, we have 30 iPads, 35 laptops and 5 iPods that our teachers can check out for use in the classroom!
Our kids get Computer Lab classes because the PTA pays for them.
Did you know the district has a technology plan that includes specific skills at each grade level, including cyber safety? In the computer lab students work on word processing skills, district benchmarks, practice vocabulary and math skills, take comprehension tests with Accelerated Reader (A.R.), and work on reading skills with the Lexia program.
Additionally ALL students have access to chrome books in their classrooms to further develop their academic skills through the use of technology. Our PTA has helped to fund our chrome book purchase. Students in 3rd - 5th grade are privileged to have "one to one" use of chrome books.
With the implementation of Common Core, students will be required to complete standardized testing online. This makes technical proficiency ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT. The funds we raise at our annual AUCTION SERIES pay for both the technology and staffing in our Computer Lab.
Our kids are learning to be technologically proficient as they enhance the learning already happening in their classrooms.
