We have a collaborative lab inside the Media Center. Teachers can schedule opportunities for their students to use this state-of-the-art technology lab.

COMPUTER LAB

Students are scheduled for the computer lab three times a week for an hour session. During this time students use computers and mobile devices to complete assignments.

 

LIBRARY MEDIA 

PreK-5th grades are on a fixed/flexible schedule, meaning they come every two weeks for library instruction and checkouts.

Teachers can also schedule time to bring students in for project-based learning assignment. Students may come to the Media Center on an individual basis with a pass to complete assignments and check books in and out.
