Family Technology Night – February 23

Now that we are getting used to our one-to-one devices, we would like to share some of the wonderful learning tools we use each day! We will also share how parents can help their children at home using his or her iPad. Families will explore a variety of classrooms to learn all the different tools our children have access to.  There are many wonderful programs available that will help our children increase their reading, math and science abilities.  We hope to see you! So save the date, February 23.  That is easy to remember, 2-23-23!

Our technology night will start early. We will begin at 4:30 and end at 6:00. This will give you plenty of time to visit all the stations.  See  you at 4:30 on February 23!!

Vision Statement

At Sleepy Hill Elementary, it is our vision that a rigorous, relevant curriculum, enhanced by technology that will assure our students achieve skills necessary to succeed academically and become life-long learners. Consistent integration of technology throughout the academic day will promote our students to become self guided explorers of the vast amounts of information available at their fingertips.  We will unite parents, faculty and community members to establish an atmosphere of mutual acceptance, ongoing interest in high levels of academic achievement, and a sense of community for all.   The realization of this vision will allow our learning community to interface with technology for a more fulfilling exploration of their global world.
