Coral Reef Elementary recently opened a second computer lab to fulfill the technological needs of its students.
The lab houses 20 computers and allows the children to spend time working on programs such as Reading Plus, SuccessMaker, Accelerated Reader and Gizmos.
Principal Fred Albion said that he believes the new lab will enhance the students’ computer technology as well as reinforce basic learning skills.
“We live in a computer-based society. Having our students spend more time on their fundamentals and work on a computer is a win-win situation for the kids,” Dr. Albion said.
The computer lab is housed in the school’s newest building and serves mostly fourth and fifth grade students.
