We collect empty ink jet cartridges and cell phones. We send them in for cash. The money is used to buy more ink and other computer supplies for students.
Ocotillo School is part of the Palmdale School District’s SuccessMaker Enterprise pilot program. We are using this new educational software in our computer labs, and our 2nd - 6th grade classrooms. It was going so well we just added 10 more licenses, we have a total of 95 licenses for SuccessMaker Enterprise. We were very fortunate to receive donated computers from Los Angeles County. Students in grades 1st - 6th are able to use the new software. This software works on the skills students need to perform well on their STAR tests. It is very intuitive to each child. We are focusing on reading and math skills this year. We are excited to already see measurable growth in the students’ abilities. We also use IXL for math practice. Students can access this program from home to practice.
