Learning experiences in the Computer Lab are collaborative extensions of classroom curriculum. Weekly sessions may also include the use of FASTT Math, Lexia Reading and Building Blocks, math software for Pre-K to Grade 5 students. Beginning in Third Grade, keyboarding skills are taught with the program, Type to Learn 4.

In addition to working with classroom teachers and instructional aides, the Instructional Technology Specialist, Rosie Delacruz, collaborates with the Library/Media Specialist, Ann Niederkorn, to prepare lessons that will help students meet educational technology and library media learning expectations for their respective grade levels. These learning expectations include basic operations, literature appreciation, research skills, processing and sharing, media literacy, and digital literacy and citizenship.

Students in Grades 3-5 are also taught Internet safety and digital citizenship from curriculum material that is acquired and adapted from Common Sense Media.
