School Supply Update

posted Jul 24, 2016, 1:38 PM by   [ updated Jun 13, 2017, 11:47 AM ]

This year for technology and related assignments new students of 4th-5th grade  need to purchase a USB drive. You can buy them from almost anywhere like the Dollar store, Walmart, Office Max, Office Depot, Staples, Kmart, Target just to name a few examples.   The USB drive needs to have at least 2 gigs of memory, but if you would like to buy one with more memory that is fine.   These are going to be used at school and stored in a safe area for safe keeping and easily retrievable to students when needed.  All students who had a USB will be able to use that same USB which is currently storaged. 

Thank You,
Miss Jones
