Computer Lab is held once per week for each grade.  Classes for Kindergarten through 4th grade are ungraded.  Grades 5th through 8th grade do not received a separate "Computer" grade on their report card, but the computer grade is folded into another subject grade based upon the project/software utilized.
Students may complete lab work during their recess after prior arrangements are made with the Computer teacher.
