Lower School Technology Coffee
Power Point available! Please click link below to access.
Several weeks back,we held our LS Technology Coffee.  At that coffee Dave, Elizabeth, and I shared student survey results, as well as information and tips to help you as parents manage your child's technology use.  The attached Power Point was shown at the meeting, and we found the survey results from our third, fourth, and fifth graders especially interesting.
