Welcome Back to School!

Welcome back to the new school year.  We are excited about continuing on with our 1:1 I-Pad program in grades 1, 4 & 5 and have expanded our program into grades 2 & 3 this year.   Our students will use the I-Pads during school time.  We have selected educational apps that are appropriate to support their learning and will use these apps each year. You may find that your child may also speak about apps that their classroom teachers may use to support their curriculum.  Many of the apps we use are free apps and some are purchased apps but are all available at the APP Store should you wish to get them for your own devices at home.   Please ask your student to share what they are using in school with you.

During the school year please make sure you have your child log-in to their Google Drive to share their work that they are working on.  You can also see their portfolios that they have created with prior years projects.  Our teachers will speak more about this during their open house presentations.

Our elementary classroom teachers received a new Chromebook and a new I-Pad to kick off the school year.  We are extremely excited to have these new devices and are looking forward to another great year.  Visit us often to find out more about our projects this year.
