Welcome to the Technology Page
At Catoctin Elementary, technology is an integral part of your child's academic experience. Teachers at Catoctin enhance instruction through the use of the four in-class computers, laptop carts, computer lab, and Samsung tablets. Everyday at Catoctin is an opportunity for students to experience the power of technology hands-on. The Technology Resource Teacher and Technology Assistant are available to assist teachers with lesson research, planning and delivery.
Each K-3 classroom has four Dell workstations and a colored printer. Each 4-5 classroom has two Dell workstations, two laptops, and a colored printer. Every classroom has a Promethean Interactive Whiteboard as well. Our computer lab contains about 30 Dell workstations and laser printers. We also have over 100 laptops on 5 different carts around the school and a set of 13 Samsung Galaxy tablets.
Some of the software Catoctin students have access to includes:
- Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Publisher, Access, OneNote)
- Pixie 4
- Read Write Gold
- and several web-based applications
Every few months, we send off our used inkjet and laserjet cartridges in return for money that is put back into the technology budget at Catoctin. Almost all brands and types of cartridges are accepted. If you would like to donate any empty ink cartridges, there is a box in the back of the computer lab where they are collected.
