Lab Gets New Computers
The Computer Lab at Sunset Valley just got brand new Apple iMac computers. The kids are real exicted exclaiming "Awesome!", "Sweet!" and "I must be dreaming!" This was made possible through the 2008 Technology Bond. The old lab computers are being put to use in classrooms around the building.
Fifth graders use the new computers to create graphs in Excel.
