Computer Lab Syllabus

Hello Parents,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Computer Class! The content of this syllabus will be discussed as a class. Please take a moment to review the syllabus at home with your child.

All students must have the Acceptable Use and Responsibility for Use of Electronic Communication Systems and Devices form signed by a parent and student and turned in to the office. If it is not turned in your child may not use the computer in the computer lab.

I look forward to teaching our students technology and how it affects our lives. If you have any questions or concerns please email me through my website contact page

Thank you,

Ms. Eilish Morales
Computer Teacher grades 2nd to 8th
