Student Technology

Mr. Whipple is looking for seventh graders who would like to become a Student Technology Wizard (STW) in his advisory next year. STWs will be trained to help teachers and other students with the technology used in school. Those selected for this advisory would spend some of their Flex time providing technical support to others. Please note: the most important quality of STWs is a strong desire to work with others, both teachers and classmates. Technical ability is secondary.


Interested students should stop by room 103 and pick up an application. Applications are due on Thursday, May 24th.  There will be an information session for interested seventh graders during Flex on Tuesday, May 22nd. Students should see Mr. Whipple for a pass if they would like to attend one of these sessions. Also, feel free to email Mr. Whipple with questions (
