In instructional settings, the value of these technologies often lies in the interactive capabilities. Students are involved and participating in a way that has never been done before.  Many thanks to our benefactors and the Home and School Association.  Through your efforts in fundraising we have been able to be in the forefront of education. While always focusing on teaching the basics, we have been able to move ahead and allow our students the opportunities that technology has to offer.
