Having Google save your password is a HORRIBLE idea! You don't want the next person that uses the Computer or Chromebook to have access to your accounts. If they delete your work, it could be lost forever. If they send out an unwanted email, you will be responsible. If they do an inappropriate search you could lose your computer privileges!

Computers and Technology

During the Computers and Technology "trimester", students will be exposed to a wide range of skills. These skills will help them become lifelong learners in our technology driven society. In addition to becoming more efficient in keyboarding, the students will explore a number of programs while developing projects to be used across the curriculum.  In addition to projects students will be given a foundation for Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship.



The quadrilaterals of Shapeville all live very simple happy lives. The Evil Mr. Round with his smooth sides and no corners is constantly causing trouble in the town. Lucky for the Quads, as they are called for short, Triangleman is around to protect them. Triangleman was born to a simple quad, upon his arrival the doctors noticed the young shape only had three sides. He was given the name Trip by his birth quad. He was forced to live a life of solitude bouncing from home to home hoping to be accepted by the quads of Shapeville. At the age of seven Trip completed his first good deed when he helped and elderly old rectangle across the busiest street in Shapeville. Trip loved the feeling that came over his body as the old rectangle rewarded him with an Ice Cream cone for his first good deed completed. From that day forward Trip had a purpose. He was put in Shapeville to serve the Quads, and protect them from his evil nemesis Mr. Round.
