Our MacBooks are here!

What an exciting day! From the first signs of the FedEx truck, through the unloading of 420 individual boxes, through the un-boxing of 420 individual boxes, through the breaking down and trashing of 420 individual boxes (are you beginning to see a pattern here?), the excitement was seeping up and down the hallways and outside in the dumpster! Not too long now, kids... 24-7 learning is almost ready to ROLL OUT!

APD: Apple Professional Development

Sixteen teachers spent two days on Nov. 2- Nov. 3 in Apple Professional Development. Our Apple trainer, Jim Webber, presented a multitude of learning experiences on Technology-Infused Learning. Everything from great educational shortcuts with the Mac Operating system, to educational websites and project ideas, to classroom management in a 1:1 learning environment, to creating our own podcasts tied around a curricular question. These teachers are ready to lead the way in transforming their classrooms and beyond into high quality 24-7 learning experiences for our students.
