As we watch another year of Homecoming come and go, we realize how fast time flies and many of us remember back to our own Homecoming days. This year held more rain than most, but the rest of the week looks promising for nicer weather. Don’t miss the parade on October 3 at noon and the Homecoming football game at 7 p.m. More pictures and details will be featured this week in the Idaho Enterprise.

Chromebooks are providing schools with unlimited learning resources. Thanks to Principal John Cockett and Vice Principal Teri Sorenson and their hard work in getting a grant for Chromebooks at the high school, students will have access to immediate and on-demand resources for project based learning and standardize digital tools.
Austin Hubbard, Tyrell Neal, and Brady Hubbard smile for a picture while showing off their new Chromebooks.
The benefits include providing students with the ability to collaborate in real time, increasing student/teacher and student/student communication, and moving from regular textbooks to digital textbooks.
Students who wish to purchase their Chromebook at the end of their senior year will have the opportunity to do so. As a pilot program, the school will adapt the program as they move forward.
