Dear HTS Middle School students:
Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year and welcome to the HTS Digital Learning Initiative. As many of you already know, the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) has generously donated the money that was used to purchase all the iPads, Apple TV Boxes, App Store Vouchers, etc. for this program. The iPad is a wonderful learning device that will assist teachers in the delivery of our curriculum and will assist you in researching, writing, communicating and much more. Having said that, the device is very expensive and, ultimately, a privilege, not a right. We hope you will use your iPad to further your education, continue to become lifelong learners and create a very positive digital footprint.
Also, with your iPads, the school district has provided each student with an email address. This email is configured to only send/receive emails from other @hardingtwp.org email addresses. In other words, your teachers, administrators and fellow students. Please use this email responsibly and appropriately.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your parents, teachers, administrators or other adults; we are here to help you. Have a great year and let the learning begin (don’t forget to thank your parents!)
