We are excited to move forward with the next phase of iLearn 97. As you are probably aware, our fifth grade students are the first to participate in our 1:1 technology program. Currently the students have been using iPad minis in the classroom and the next step will be for the students to bring the devices home on a daily basis to extend their learning experiences.
As a part of this initiative we are hosting a parent/guardian information night that is required for all fifth grade families before students are able to bring devices home. During this event we will share expectations and details about the iLearn 97.
The format for the evening will be as follows:
– Overview presentation
– Questions and Answers
– Required technology fee payment (link to document – can be paid in advance at:)
– Student demonstrations
Again, it is required that parents/guardians attend one of these information nights prior to students being able to bring the iPads home. If you are not able to attend the session at your home school, you can attend one of the other sessions. The content will be the same.
