Library Tech Option

All students in Kindergarten, first, and second grade participate in a technology class one cycle every school year. In each of these classes, they are introduced to new computer skills that increase in difficulty as they go up in grades. From basic technology vocabulary and using the mouse, to working on a Word document alphabet book, to preparing a PowerPoint slide show, it is exciting to witness the students’ technology skills and self-esteem grow.

A district-wide showcase gives teams the opportunity to share their ideas with others. Parents and teachers serve as team coaches.
