The new school year is off to a good start. Our back to school night was a great event with good participation. I was excited to meet the families of our students. I am thankful to be working with great teachers and staff. Parents and family it is our privilege to partner with you to teach your children from a Christian worldview. Our vision is to challenge our students to think critically and creatively to be prepared for what God has in store for them.
With this vision in mind, I am excited about the support and endorsement from the Mt. Salus school board to begin our pilot program of 1:1 Apple computers for students in the 10th-12th grade. By integrating technology into our curriculum our students will be better prepared for their next phase in life that God has for them. As we implement this new phase into our school, there will be a learning curve by students, teachers, staff, and parents. But we are excited to do this because we see the need to prepare our students. From taking notes to sending papers electronically (less use of paper) to projects and learning resources, computers in the hands of students are a great benefit. In the same token, we also must teach students the dangers of technology and the importance of being wise in our decisions in how we use this technology.
In the coming days, more information will be sent to families about the implementation of this program. Stay posted.
