Since we now are living in the times of "digital learners" I want to encourage you to consider letting your student bring his or her cellphone to school on FRIDAYS ONLY during the last trimester of schools so we can use them for learning. They can "text" me their answers, etc.
Here's the catch...the school, nor I, can be responsible if it becomes lost or stolen :(. I know, I know, this creates a dilema...but, if you are willing to trust your little one to care for his or her personal items, I can promise that their love for school will increase with the use of their "personal computers." Ultimately, it is your call as to whether you will permit it...
