New Technology at Our School!

Kempton is proud to have 1 iPad for every 3rd grader.  Students use the iPads to research, to read, to record, and to share their learning in a variety of ways.  In other words, this technology is a regular learning tool and a natural part of their learning day.  This is particularly important as we move to the new standards, that emphasize technology and real-world connections to learning.
