Throop Chromebook Orientation July 30

Dear Parents of Students in Grades 3, 4, 5, and 6,

As part of our Paoli School Corporation’s commitment to being “Future Ready” with technology, Throop students in Grades 3,4,5, and 6 are preparing to have their own school issued electronic device to be used in all aspects of learning at home and at school.  This 1 to 1 initiative will have a huge impact on the continued growth and learning of our students.

Grade 3,4,5, and 6 students will be issued a Chromebook during a 1:1 Orientation Meeting that will take place at the Throop Elementary Gym on July 30, 2015.  You have a choice of attending the 5:00pm or the 7:00pm meeting.  Please be mindful that in order for each student to receive their Chromebook, the student and a parent must attend one of the meetings.

At this meeting, the faculty will discuss details of our 1:1 program, outline the 1:1 handbook, and issue Chromebooks to all students in attendance.  Chromebook insurance guidelines will be explained and parents should be prepared to sign up for this insurance for a cost of $38.00 for the 2015-16 school year.

Please contact the Throop office (723-3537) if you have questions prior to the informational meeting on July 30, 2015.  We look forward to seeing you then as we start this journey together.
