Instructional Technology

  • At our school, we understand the importance of integrating technology into and across the curriculum. 

     Students have the opportunity to receive instruction face-to-face and virtually. Technology can be seen in the the hands of children as they are actively engaged in rigorous and relevant learning experiences every day. 

    Staff development opportunities are provided to teachers throughout the school year so that their digital toolboxes are well-equipped to enhance the learning process.

    C:  I don't have a printer.

    A:  Much of the work assigned can be submitted digitally.  In addition to downloading Teams on your personal devices (works on phones, iPads, computers), Office Lens is another great app.   It takes clean, free images of documents.   Best of all, it can be linked directly to your student's Office 365 account so that all scans are sent directly to their OneDrive.
