OUR SCHOOLS: Chromebook Kickoff Event Brings Hands-on Learning Devices to Over 260 Bulkeley High School Students

First and foremost, Chromebooks are finally in our classrooms and in the hands of our students. Carts are being used at Bulkeley Lower High School and at Journalism and Media Magnet Academy, and over 260 11-12 graders at Bulkeley Upper now have devices to take home.

On Saturday, March 12, from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, just under 200 students and family members came to Bulkeley High School for the first ever Chromebook Kickoff. Students and families first learned about Chromebook care and HPS policies in two brief presentations, given in both English and Spanish. After passing through these stations and signing some paperwork, the students received their devices. A big thank you to Stacey Rosado, Diana Gonzalez, Myrna Rivera, Billy Conroy, Kevin Clemens, Diane Anthony, Yolanda Baez, Gayle Allen-Greene, and Kim Childress for making everything run smoothly for all 10 hours! A special thank you to the student volunteers from Bulkeley's National Honor Society for guiding families around in the school and helping with childcare.
