WELCOME TO THE PS 94 COMPUTER LAB!

Technology Mission

Ensuring EVERY Student Reaches the Peak of Success


The computer lab is integrated into all areas of the curriculum as an extension of the classroom.  Students in Grades 3 to 5 attend computer lab for a scheduled 45-minute period every week.  When they come to the lab they will work on different technology programs throughout the school year.

The computer lab is equipped with iMacs, laser printers, color printers, a scanner, document camera and a SMART Board.  All computers have Internet access however students must have the Technology Acceptable Use Policy on file before they are allowed to use it.  They also need the Consent to Photograph, Film, Videotape in order for us to display student work and pictures on our school website.

Please familiar yourself with our school website at www.ps94x.org.  It has a wealth of information, calendars and links especially for our families at PS 94.
