Kilmer 1:1 Technology Project
In order to reach the technology goal outlined in our school vision (21st century learning) we are implementing the Kilmer 1:1 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.
For more information about our project see the document below. To learn more about research on 1:1 technology projects, click on this link:

On Thursday, April 30th, a team of lawyers from the Boston law firm Nutter, McClennen & Fish came to the Kilmer Lower and Upper Schools for Law Day in the Schools, an annual event organized by the Boston Bar Association. Law Day is designed to allow students to interact with practicing lawyers around important legal issues and learn more about what it means to be a lawyer. This year's program introduced students to the Magna Carta.
On Friday, May 1, the DemandWare legal department dropped off multiple boxes of books that it had collected for the Kilmer Lower and Upper School libraries and then stayed to act as "consultants" for sixth graders as they worked on their research projects and practiced their academic discussion skills.
Many thanks to both teams of lawyers!
