Announcing the STA tech blog

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year and the new STA Tech Blog. I am pleased to be back with STA. It will be a bit of a challenge for me as I transition from being a parent volunteer to being part of the staff. This year will be a full one with new technology-related activities and programs as well as the return of activities from last year.

We will regularly be posting here. The first objective is to let parents and students know about upcoming events and opportunities both in the school as well as externally. The second objective is to keep parents informed about classroom and extracurricular activities in which the students have been participating. As the blog develops, we will also periodically address issues and questions regarding technology and its use. We want to be a resource for students and parents.

The STEAM program will be a work in progress for the foreseeable future, and I ask for patience and assistance as it develops. In addition to the STEAM program, we will be enhancing our use of technology in the classroom and other areas of the school. I solicit input about how we can improve our programs and systems.
