Students at Palmer High School have been training on computer skills that will help them beyond high school.
About two dozen of the students have been working toward certification in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
The school’s digital classes give students the tools that will help them succeed in most office environments.
“Instead of doing regular classwork, they are actually taking some tutorials that are online, through some different venues that the district has provided for us,” digital instructor Susan Fletcher said. “They have to be self-starters. So pretty much, I show them how to log in and create their account, and from there, they’re doing the tutorials on their own. So that’s what makes me especially proud of them.”
The students earning the certifications are Marissa Benavidez, Zandler Predmore, and J Wolfe. More are expected as enrollment for the class continues to grow.
