Tech Program
Holy Trinity School maintains a technology lab of 30 computers with cable internet access. The acquistion of a SmartBoard in 2006, have allowed the children access to the latest technology. The SmartBoard is an interactive whiteboard that is connected to a computer and a data projector. Once the computer image is projected on the board, the SmartBoard can be used as a computer. By just using your finger you can control the computer.


The use of the SmartBoard captures the attention of the students and allows the teacher access to the most current information which is instantly displayed on the screen.

Every grade has weekly technology class where Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access are taught. Students become skilled at web-based research as they use additional technology classes to do project work that supports classroom learning. The lab is available to all students who need help gathering information for reports and projects that are assigned throughout the year. The technology curriculum also includes hardware instruction. The children receive the hands-on experience of building computers from the ground up and troubleshooting systems affected by sypware, viruses and corrupted file systems.

The Internet Safety program provided by I-safe is used in the Pre-K through the 8th grade. Visit www.i-safe.org to preview the curriculum. Safety and bullying programs will be offered throughout the year to the students and parents.
