PACE PROJECT (Personalized Achievement, Curriculum and Environment)
SUMMER BOOT CAMP FOR STUDENTS
Our students have an exciting opportunity this summer! We will hold a one-day boot camp so students can learn more about the tablets that are part of the Personalized Achievement, Curriculum and Environment (PACE) project.
The project is part of a $35.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, and will provide tablet computers for each student in our school. The tablets will be pre-loaded with all of the lessons and assignments for their classes, as well as research tools and secure Internet access.
During our Student Boot Camp, students will learn how to use and care for the tablet, rules for using the tablet, and more.
Our school’s boot camp is scheduled for: August 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Please make every effort to ensure your child will attend. Students who cannot attend the boot camp will still receive a tablet, but may need extra time to learn how to use it.
We will provide lunch and GCS will provide transportation to and from the camp for all students who need it. Please see the bus schedule in the attachments below. (You may need to magnify it to read it.)
We sent a letter home with all students on Tuesday, May 28th, and there is a transportation request form on the back of the letter. You may also click on the link to the letter and transportation form below. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE TRANSPORTATION-REQUEST FORM FOR YOUR CHILD TO RECEIVE TRANSPORTATION. The forms must be returned to your child’s homeroom teacher by WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5.
If you have additional questions, please call Mrs. McHam at 336-545-3717.
