Ipads that are taken home nightly need to be returned each school day fully charged. We use iPads daily and it is important they are ready for a full day of learning! Also, please return the signed iPad Device Agreement and fee as soon as possible if you have not already done so. If you are unsure how much you owe, please contact Mrs. Churchill in the front office. She will be happy to help you with this information.
