Welcome to the Technology PageAt Catoctin Elementary, technology is an integral part of your child's academic experience. Teachers at Catoctin enhance instruction through the use of the four in-class computers, laptop carts, computer lab, Samsung tablets, and iPads. Everyday at Catoctin is an opportunity for students to experience the power of technology hands-on. The Instructional Facilitator of Technology and Technology Assistant are available to assist teachers with lesson research, planning and delivery.

Recycling ProgramEvery few months, we send off our used inkjet and laserjet cartridges in return for money that is put back into the technology budget at Catoctin. Almost all brands and types of cartridges are accepted. If you would like to donate any empty ink cartridges, please place them in Mrs. Agosta's mailbox or in the box in the back of the computer lab.
