In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. All students want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer. Our students will certainly be provided a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as they learn and master a wide range of 21st Century Skills.
In this year’s “Technology Applications” class, students will learn and master various topics associated with computers and technology. For a list of the various technology topics covered in this course, CLICK HERE for a PDF file. CLICK HERE for a Microsoft Word document.

6th Graders are on their way to completing their first Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. They have filled in the data from their "First Apartment" research and are ready to wrap up their spreadsheet by learning to add Functions, Currency Formatting, Borders and a little color. As soon as they are done, they will be reviewing and getting ready for their first Excel test on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The students next spreadsheet will have them owning their own store. In their next spreadsheet, students will learn to work with "Cost, Markup and Selling Price" for each item they sell.
As students complete their spreadsheets, samples will be made available for viewing. Stay tuned.
If all goes well, we may do another Proofreading and Typing Lesson on Thursday and Friday.
