Exciting News: iPads in First Grade!
Mrs. Paden and I recently applied to NorthWestern Energy for a charitable donation to begin adding iPads to the first grade classroom. We are very excited to announce that NorthWestern Energy generously donated $1,200 to our vision. We will be using these iPads to create more projects like the Little Bird Tales below and to supplement the existing curriculum with engaging and purposeful learning applications. Check back soon to see how the first grade is using their new tools!
A HUGE THANK YOU NORTHWESTERN ENERGY!
More Exciting News: iPads for Science in the Library!
Each year Ruby Valley Hospital donates the money earned from athlete physicals performed within our school directly back to us for our library to purchase materials that support science. This year we received a $1,150 check and we will be using it to purchase three iPads which will be loaded with science applications to support our K-12 science curriculum. I will be working with the teachers to get these iPads into the classroom for student group use and for use over the projector. Mrs. Calvert is already planning to use the iPads during her upcoming unit on infectious diseases and Mrs. Carlson will be using them in second grade for their solar system unit. I will be posting some of our projects and uses on the web in the coming weeks. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE RUBY VALLEY HOSPITAL!
