Technology

Students use Chromebooks for programming

K-8 students use technology in their classrooms to enhance what they are learning in all subject areas.

  • Students in grades 3-8 are issued Chromebooks at a 1:1 ratio.
  • Carts of iPads are located outside of the lower elementary classrooms. Computers in the rooms allow additional easy access to the technology best suited to the work students are doing.
  • Our technology standards not only cover the skills each student should have but go far beyond. Students work on projects individually and in teams to deepen and enhance the learning process. 

Technology provides teachers with effective ways to reach different types of learners and allows them to assess student learning through multiple means. Document cameras and interactive white boards in our classrooms facilitate discussion. Students use Google Drive to collaborate on projects and share their work with teachers. We stress Internet safety for the protection of our students.

St. Patrick School teachers use the PowerSchool student information system to communicate achievement for each child. It is easy to stay up to date on your child's academic progress. Visit the Parent Resources section of this website to learn more about accessing PowerSchool via the web or an iPhone or Android app and receiving regular email updates.

Please contact Mrs. Steinfadt if you have any questions about our technology program.

Flexible schedules allow for exciting and beneficial cross-curricular projects.
