For parents of students that will be using Chromebooks in the classroom, there is a handbook that should be reviewed and a consent form that should be signed prior to the student using the Chromebook. Students in 5th grade will each have their own Chromebook to use for certain activities within the classroom. This will better prepare our students for the future as the world is constantly evolving in regards to technology. We are also looking forward to each 4th grade student also having their own Chromebook, hopefully, by the end of this semester.
