Laptop setup for new MS students

6th-grader-laptop-setup-1000pxOne of the joys of starting the new school year is setting up the MacBooks for our new 6th graders. Each student gets their own log in and is able to customize the desktop and other areas of these laptops. As you can see from the photo to the right, the new Middle School students really enjoy this rite of passage.

By the way, we name each MacBook. This year laptops are named after great American movies. The one in the picture above is “The Godfather.”

And one final note: Synergy is starting its 7th year using laptops in grades 6th through 8th. The mobile devices are used throughout the year in Humanities, Science, Elective (web design, Photoshop etc.) and Yearbook classes.
