DUBUQUE (KWWL) - Holy Ghost Eelementary hosted a unique celebration to welcome new computers to their school.

"We ask this through christ our lord," said the Holy Ghost priest.

Yes! They are blessing computers. 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 and when students are on-task and engaged, there's less behavior problems and academic achievement increases," said Dale Blesz with Loras for Literacy.

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