About the Computer Lab

Welcome back!

My name is Mr. Le, the Computer Resource Teacher here at Pleasant Grove Elementary.  This is my 24th year of teaching, and 17th as the Computer Resource Teacher. Throughout the year, I will post updates about the lab & technology curriculum here on the computer lab blog. The Tech Skills list goes over what we will cover in more detail.  Students will come to computers at least once a week (45 minutes for K-2 & 60 minutes for 3-6).

During the first week, we discuss rules and go over operating procedures and expectations.  Students (2nd-6th) will also take a STAR Reading Assessment diagnostic test to find their AR reading level. I will also discuss the importance of turning in the Technology Use (Internet access) form (English | Spanish).  Your child’s teacher will be sending a form home the first week. Please read & sign this as soon as possible and turn it in to the classroom teacher so your child is ready to go. Continue reading
