As the new school year begins, technology in SMMS advances as well. There are many new technological devices in this school year. New Chromebooks, a better Wifi, and other items fill the school. This year, the school has 90 new Chromebooks that are all placed in a specialized cart that charges them. Each student in grades 6 through 8 has an assigned Chromebook in the new one to one program. All of the teachers have Smart Boards in their classrooms, which are virtual whiteboards, which allows them to can draw, erase, and do many more class activities on them with ease. The whiteboards can be used to help tutor and educate the pupils in this school. The technology in the school will help greatly to educate the students in many classes.

In addition to Chromebooks and Smart Boards, there is a specified room for the use of technology. The library has a whole set of computers for use in education. There is also a smart television in the library that connects to the teacher’s laptop and helps the students to follow the teacher. In the library, the grades 1 through 5 share a set of Chromebooks that they use for multiple purposes. As a 6th grade teacher from SMMS, Mrs. Rybczyk said, “I’m ecstatic over the improvements with technology in the building, it opens us up to a whole world that we didn’t have access to before.” Being here for almost 10 years, I think the technology has most definitely improved. We’ve both seen it grow throughout all of our years here. The students in their coming years will get a great education, as the technology will advance in the future.
