Accelerated Reader

Our school uses Accelerated Reader, therefore, most of our library books are color coded and labeled according to reading level.  This aids students in selecting books that will enable them to practice reading on a level that will be most beneficial to them while increasing comprehension skills.

Computer Technology

Students attend Computer Technology class once per week to learn and practice various digital literacy skills.  The curriculum includes basic computer hardware, keyboarding, coding, netiquette, online safety, and the creation of various types of documents.  Our primary focus is to familiarize students with the keyboard in grades K-2 so that they can become proficient keyboard users in grades 3-5.
