A variety of computer technology enriches our academic programs at Weathersfield. Students have access to our computer labs, computers in the classrooms, as well as hand held devices. A world of opportunity is opened to our children when they make that first click.
Many parents asked for tutorials to help navigate through our Math program, and we listened. This technology page has been updated with “How To” instructions for using our GO Math curriculum’s THINK CENTRAL website. This website will provide you with models for various math strategies being taught to your children. Parents, all students receive a login at the beginning of the school year. Please contact your child’s teacher if you need this information again.
We have purchased a number of web-based academic software programs for both school and home use. Please see our software list below to access this information.
