SACS Tech Squad @ KITS 2011

Spotlight on The Tech Squad

Kids in Technology & Science

By Camille Gunter

The SACS Tech Squad have recently gone on the KITS field trip.

The SACS Tech Squad is a group of kids ages 5th to 8th grade. They learn about technology and become more tech savvy, so they can help adults and students become more familiar with technology, such as Google Apps.

The KITS field trip is a yearly trip, where students are chosen to go to Champlain College to learn about and work with technology. There are two “sessions” during the day. There are four sessions to choose from, and we were able to choose two.The choices were, Building Computers, Radiology and Science, Math and Games,and Lego Robotics. Some did not get their first choice, but at least got their second choice. I thought it was a great experience! It was fun to get to know some other kids that also have an interest in technology.

No School Next Week

Reminder: There is no school all week. Monday and Tuesday are teacher in-service days, and the rest of the week we are off for the holiday. School resumes Monday November 28th. Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we are very thankful to everyone who made our annual Holiday Dinner a huge success. Thank you to The Abbey staff for making and serving a wonderful meal, parents and families who came out to join their students for lunch, Team USA and the Senior Band for putting on the lunch and entertainment for local senior citizens, First Student bus company who donated busing and drivers to get the seniors to and from the lunch, and to our SACS staff who opened their classrooms to families, were flexible on lunch times and made a wonderful welcoming environment to all of our guests.
