It's the cold month of February....to bring some fun to the computer lab, grades 3-5 will be participating the Typing Olympics! The students will work on increasing speed and accuracy in preparation for the Diocese Typing Assessment. So if you hear the Olympic theme song or the Star Spangled Banner coming from the computer lab, you will know that we are in training to be great typists.
Kindergarten through 2nd grade will be working on word processing skills. They will be typing words and formatting them in Microsoft Word and will be adding pictures to a document as well.
