Welcome to the Computer Lab

Welcome to the computer lab. Our computer lab is equipped with a SmartBoard for enhanced whole-group instruction. To help our students acquire 21st century learning skills we follow the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. View NCSCS for technology: http://www.learnnc.org/scos/ . These technology skills are taught through lessons that integrate with grade level curriculum areas and follow topics current in the regular classroom. That means students may use the computer lab to reinforce and enrich other academic areas like reading, math, science, social studies, and beyond.
