  We started the One to One Laptop initiative here at Bell Oaks in September of 2013, with that year’s grade 5 staff and students.  As of September 2016 all of our students are equipped with a laptop to use during the school day.  Our original goals in terms of implementation have been met, and our staff continues to hone this part of their craft in hopes of reaching the highest levels of engagement for our students through this technology.  The devices your children currently have access to are as follows:

Grade 5: HP Stream 11 Pro G2

Grade 6: HP 340 G2

Grade 7 : HP Elitebook 9470m

Grade 8: HP Elitebook 9470m
