Computer Lab

Instructor: Ms. Leyvas

Welcome to the Heber School Computer Lab!


Our 4th thru 8th grade students visit the computer lab on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to acquire the skills needed to succeed throughout their schooling and later in their careers. We begin our focus on basic technology skills like proper posture, typing ergonomics, and click & dragging, then build upon that foundation with word processing skills, building presentations and Internet etiquette.
