Welcome back to Computer Class! 

 

Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of students Grades K – 8,

 

During our first two weeks of Computer class, we covered the important basics – rules and policies of the Computer Lab, seating arrangements, and an introduction to the exciting Lessons planned for this school year. With Grades K-3, we went over the proper procedure for opening/shutting down our Chromebooks, and reviewed the parts of a computer. With all students, grades K-8, we learned about Internet Safety and cyber bullying. To demonstrate their understanding of the topic, the students will be taking a short Internet Safety quiz.   Students in Grades 4-8 logged into their Google Accounts and accessed the Google Classroom page for Computer class using their existing school usernames and passwords. Fourth graders and new students in Grades 5-8 were assigned the usernames for the school Google Accounts that they will carry throughout their academic careers at OLPHCA. These students created their own private passwords and practiced logging into their accounts. Accessing their school Google Accounts will become second-nature and vital for classwork as the school year progresses.

Prior to being granted access to the Internet in the classroom, all students must submit an Internet Policy form, signed by a parent or guardian. Back-to-school letters are being distributed to the students; please read them and become familiar with the policies and goals of the class for this school year. 

Sincerely,  

Mrs. Mroz 

Computer Teacher
