Welcome Back Fourth Graders!

I’m looking forward to another great year of helping you use technology with your learning. Once we introduce ourselves, I will review the important rules to remember when using technology. Then you will log in and follow the directions on a checklist to practice saving a document in Microsoft Word. If you have extra time, then head to Mousercise to practice advanced mouse skills.

Getting Ready…

August 24, 2016

Greetings Cottage Cougars,

I hope you are enjoying the summer break. I kept busy this summer with traveling and spending time with my family. Along with going to the beach several times, I also visited California and Nova Scotia.

This week I went into school and started getting the technology ready for the new school year. There are over 200 iPads, about 75 laptops, and approximately 50 desktop computers. That’s a lot of devices for kids and teachers to use! This year your class will do more with coding and exploring the maker space activities.

 Enjoy what’s left of summer vacation and I look forward to seeing you soon!

~Mr. Ahern

I stayed at a motel that looks like the Cozy Cone motel from Cars.
