Hello Students,

Welcome Back!  Ms. Alter and Ms. Hill are excited to see you in the computer lab.  Our first computer lab will be an introduction, along with “Rules of the Lab.”  We will set up our computers.  After we complete all of that, I have one fun activity planned.  It is a new educational site that I found.
