Book Care for your Library book:

 

1.           Make sure your hands are clean when reading a library book.

2.          Draw pictures on paper, not your library book.

3.          Keep crayons, markers, scissors, pencils, pens, and glue away from your library books.

4.          Sticky foods and drinks can ruin the book's pages. Do not eat your snacks while reading your library books.

5.          Use a bookmark to mark where you left offinstead of folding down the corner of the page.

6.          If a book needs repair please bring the book to the librarian to repair.

7.          Keep your library books safe by putting them away in your backpack, or on a shelf away from little brothers and sisters and your pets.

8.          Don't leave your books outside in the rain or spill water on your books. If you do, soak up the water and let your book dry by keeping it open.

Technology at Burke Town School

               

  


     

ISTE's NETS for Students (NETS•S) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge students need to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly global and digital world.

Simply being able to use technology is no longer enough. Today's students need to be able to use technology to analyze, learn, and explore. Digital age skills are vital for preparing students to work, live, and contribute to their communities.

 

Schools today are given the task of not only educating students with the three R’s of Reading, writing, and arithmetic but also are expected to give students strong backgrounds in science, technology, global studies, and “21st century skills” such as critical thinking, collaboration, oral and written communication, analyzing information, and imagination. Recognizing that we now live in a digital world, many schools are implementing one-to-one computing initiatives to help accomplish these goals. 

The Middle School initiative known as One-to-One (1:1) at Burke we are providing MacAir computers for each student in Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth grade.  Second and First Graders share a cart of Acers and our youngest technology natives, Kindergarten and First Grade also use iPads Minis.

Our one-to-one computing goals include improving academic achievement, increasing equity of access, increasing economic competitiveness, creating good digital citizens, and transforming the quality of instruction.

The benefits of one-to-one computing are improvements in writing, literacy, science, exam scores, and GPAs all have been noted in various research studies.
