The Computer Lab is utilized by all elementary students in various capacities.

First and second graders begin to learn typing techniques and are given the opportunity to practice regularly on this. They are also instructed on how to find library books using the online library search engine.

Third graders begin to learn basic word processing skills, along with some beginning internet research skills.

Fourth, fifth and sixth graders learn more advanced word processing skills, internet safety and courtesy, and and how to navigate the web to find safe, reliable sources of information. Other lessons include using Google docs, improving research skills and presentation programs, along with using the computers for teacher-led projects and assignments.

Additionally, there are scheduled "Open Lab" times for students who have work to do in the lab outside of their regularly scheduled library/lab times.
