The Hilliard City School District is pleased to begin our one to one initiative for the 2014-15 school year. Every student in grade six will be loaned an iPad mini to use both at school and at home during enrollment in the school district. Based on research we have done, the use of the iPad in a school setting is arguably one of the most significant ways to impact student motivation toward school, increase learning and achievement, provide learning resources and ebooks, and prepare students for a 21st century environment that all students will soon enter.

Mr. Walton’s Explore class is reading The Fourteenth Goldfish, by Jennifer Holm, as a part of The Global Read Aloud. The idea behind The Global Read Aloud is to connect the world through one book. This is an opportunity for Tharp sixth graders to collaborate with students from all around the world, showing them that they are a part of something bigger than themselves.
