Welcome to Summer 2020. In preparation for the next school year new and returning students should practice their typing skills.
In coming third grade students can create a free account on www.Typing.com; this is the same program that we use at SHPS to teach and reinforce typing skills.
Fourth and Fifth Grade students should practice the Word Office Suite Programs (Word, Keynote, Excel) if they have a PC at home or Keynote, Pages, and Numbers if they have a Mac or iPad.
All Middle School students should review how to use Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and iMovie on the iPad and know the basic functions of all of these programs.
The expected typing speeds by the end of the year are listed below. There are monthly typing tests and every month the minimum speed increases until they are at the end of the year expected typing speed.
