The goal in the Computer Lab is to get your child familiar with the computer, its functions, their personal logins, google accounts, as well as internet safety. It is important for our students to learn and respect computer technology. Our students have access to computer technology in multiple ways here a Branch. We not only have a Computer Lab with 35 new computers, we have computers and or Chromebooks in every classroom. Over the summer our campus was upgraded and now has WiFi throughout.
On this page you will find multiple links for your student(s) to use at home that they also use in the classroom for assignments and computer skills.There are links you can look through to help them grow based on their testing scores both MAPs and SBAC, links for typing, as well as links for "fun" learning games. The pages are set up per grade for specific links to websites the teachers have chosen to use correlating with what they are working on in the classroom both for homework and research such as Wonders, SpellingCity, and XtraMath. All of the resources you will find through this page are great for your children when they want to explore and have screen time at home. We encourage you to allow your student to use the computer, type, and explore our site.
- Our Kindergarten class has access to the lab once a week, however Ms. Angell and Mrs. Provence are amazing with providing both Tablets and Computer centers throughout their days.
- Grade1-3 have access to the lab twice a week.
- Grades4-6 have access to the lab twice a week as well as each student has a Chromebook in their classroom.
Currently the goals set forth in the Computer Lab are to familiarize your student(s) with logging on to their personal Microsoft desktop, getting into their google account, learning google functions, and typing skills.
My personal goal is for our lower grades to be able to come into the lab and log on to their computers unassisted and go into their typing program which is accessed through this webpage. As for the upper grades proficiency in typing, Google, and navigating safely on the internet.
Technology is our future, lets show them the safe way!
