Technology

We've made great strides in incorporating technology into our classrooms. We believe that if our children are to excel in a fast-changing, global society, we must provide them with the technology resources they need to succeed in a digital age. 

Links to the most commonly used instructional software tools are listed and linked on the Digital Learning Tools page.
