In today's world, technology is a way of life. We would be remiss if we did not attend to the needs to educate our students on its value in the realm of education. Therefore, beginning in kindergarten, our students are scheduled in the lab for computer lessons. First through sixth grader students are in the computer lab three times a week. Our students experience PowerPoint presentations, spreadsheets in Excel, brochures in Publisher, all features of Word, and coding. Additionally, they learn keyboarding skills and Internet safety. Our fourth through sixth graders engage in the Robotics Program, a STEM initiative that allows them build a robot out of LEGOSs and then program it on their iPads. They delight in seeing their robots move as they programmed them to do. Students in preschool through third grade also participate in a LEGO Robotics Program.
Besides the computer lab, our school also has 30 iPads which the teachers bring into their classrooms for their students to use during the school day. In addition, students in third through sixth grade have their own laptops, and students in first and second grade have their own iPads.
