Kilmer 1:1 Technology Project
This is an exciting endeavor that will put a Microsoft tablet, that is engineered for education, in the hands of each and every student at the upper school! In addition, we will also purchase plenty of tablet centers to be used at the lower school. This project also includes purchasing subscriptions to online book resources and online textbook services. This will offer students an unlimited amount of books and information at a variety of reading levels, the possibilities are endless!
Come to the Kilmer Lower on Tuesday, June 2nd at 8:30 am for a brief discussion about this project or the School Parent Council meeting on June 1st (at upper school) to discuss this exciting project that will have a significant impact on teaching and learning at the Kilmer.

OPTIMIZING HOME-SCHOOL COMMUNICATION
WE NEED YOU!!!
PARENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY:
In order to provide the most up-to-date information to Kilmer families, we will need to collect email addresses at the start of the year.
We aim to collect 100% of our families email addresses to optimize home-school communication.
If you would be able to volunteer to help with this project, it would be truly appreciated.
This is the type of project that would be great for parents who would like to help out but because of work schedules, have limited time coming in to school.
Please email Ms. Cramer if you are interested or have questions:
