  Project Overview

The creation and development of a home page would be an excellent means of involving a large number of students in a hands on approach to accessing the Internet. Initially the group would go online to research other home pages with the aim of eventually creating their own . It is proposed that students would utilize a digital camera and scanner to post photos and art work on the home page. Different groups of students would be responsible for development of various topics such as the St. Jean Vianney Pre-School Program, the Challenging Needs class, Accelerated Reader Program, etc. The homepage would also involve other social and academic events related to our school life.
