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.

Plugging Away at Great Things

The Principles of Information Technology class has been involved in "Career Exploration".  In this unit, we have covered much ground and getting ready to wrap up the unit with Job Applications for work.  Students will complete 3 job applications on paper and one sample online application. Coming soon is a major final project to share what was learned in the unit.  For their final project, students will choose from three different activities.  Stay tuned.

In Computer Science, students are programming in Python.  At the end of each 5 programming exercises, students work on a larger program using the skills they are learning.  Their second major program will have students listing their 8 courses and grades.  A grade average must be calculated and a message is displayed based on the grade average.  Students who have a high average will see a message of congratulations.  Students who's average is not so good, will receive a message of encouragement.  Students with a failing average will be be directed to get additional help as needed.
