School blesses new computers

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- Holy Ghost Elementary hosted a unique celebration Friday to welcome new computers to their school - a computer blessing.

Holy Ghost received a gift of two new computer carts as a gift from Loras college through the Loras for Literacy grant.

"We found that in classrooms where we are using technology that students are more on-task and engaged," said Lorus representative Dale Blesz.  "And when students are on-task and engaged, there's less behavior problems and academic achievement increases"

Each computer cart contains 20 lap top computers that will be used to enhance learning in the classroom.
