Welcome!

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.

The 6th Graders continue their work with Python programming.  Students are really doing a great job of debugging their programs and getting them up and running.  We hope to wrap up this unit next week with tons of sample programs to showcase.

The 8th Graders worked on a video to show what was done during "Public School Week".  Videos will be showcased soon.  As we conclude this project, students will have videos for our Kickball Tournament, Moms and Dads visit, Lunch with Parents and the Showcase Night at the elementary school.  I am looking forward to the completion of the videos so we can get them online for your viewing.

This week's newscast is on-line and ready for viewing:  Click Here  This weeks news team consisted of Isaiah Medrano, Caleb Sevier and Max Perez.

Stayed tuned.

During "Public School Week" students were pretty busy.

6th Grade Computer Science students completed a series of Python programming exercises. With each exercise, students are learning and mastering the process of typing, debugging and running Python Programs.

8th graders were busy this week working on a video with pointers and tips to help students prepare for the "STAAR" test.  The videos are near completion and as the videos are completed on Monday or Tuesday, I hope to post them for all students to see and learn from.
