Headphones for each student

In the computer lab sound is a very important part of the majority of websites and programs we use. This year each student will receive headphones to use in the computer lab and in the classroom. These are durable headphones and should last until your student completes fifth grade.

If your student damages or loses their headphones the replacement cost is $20.00. Students may only use the headphones we provide here at the school and may not substitute any other headphone. Headphones should NEVER go home with the student. We will mark and store the headphones throughout the school year and over summer. Portable headphones will allow us to take advantage of the technology we offer not only in the lab but in our classrooms.
I also want to encourage the students to visit my website weekly and take advantage of the links under their grade level. Many of these links are the ones I use in class with your students so they will be familiar with the activities. Teachers will also be using these links to reinforce skills in class.

Thank you for allowing me to work with your children. I am looking forward to this school year and the things God has in store for us!
