Middle School goes 1 to 1 chromebooks!

Saint Ambrose School's Middle School (grades 6-8th) will be going 1 to 1 with Samsung Chromebooks for the 2016-2017 school year!  Utilizing Google Classroom, grades 6-8th teachers will begin working on paperless classrooms and integrating the new SMART Boards in each classroom as they enhance the classroom experience. 

Grades K thru 5 are not left out of these digital enhancements.  In addition to SMART Boards in each classroom, the school has added another iPad cart, bringing our total to two iPad carts for teachers to use in their classrooms! Not to be forgotten is our computer lab which has been worked on over the summer, which is also available to each grade.  

Middle School Families, here are some suggested and necessary items to properly utilize the chromebooks: 

 Headphones (not expensive ones) these are so students can listen to audio recordings and videos from the digital textbook.

 A USB computer mouse or wireless mouse (optional)

 Hard case for Samsung 11.6inch Google Chromebook. Click or copy below for example: Hard Case for Chromebook

 Access to the Internet in order to access Google classrooms for assignments, calendars, and updates.
