Computers


St. Agnes School is committed to staying abreast of, and current with, the latest technologies that have proven to be beneficial in educating students. Computers are an integral part of the St. Agnes curriculum, and the integration occurs in various ways at different grade levels.

The Kinders, 1st grade and 2nd grade learn basic computer protocol while learning phonics, math, grammar, and drawing skills. Computer classes are an additional medium for reinforcing basic skills.

3rd grade really takes off with their computer skills, learning keyboarding and word processing through an assortment of assignments serving to reinforce grammar skills, spelling skills, etc. In the 2nd trimester, 3rd grade creates a slide show presentation, and in the 3rd trimester, they create a graph in a spreadsheet program.

4th through 8th grade continually add computer skills to their repertoire through a multitude of grade level assignments. They do charts, timelines, research, websites, graphs, more advanced slide shows, and produce many other creations, depending on the learning to be achieved.

When St. Agnes students graduate from St. Agnes, they leave with a strong foundation of computer skills.
