Tim Harkins, our Digital Learning Coach, led our staff through a variety of centers at our recent staff meeting to explore the various technologies we have available at Bancroft. The stations were self-led and allowed the teachers to think critically, be creative and persevere the skills we want to build in our students ever day!!

Doherty Students, Lucas Bacchi, Chad Coa, Davis Blanch and Steven Zhang attended the MassCUE Teacher Technology Conference at Gillette stadium on Oct. 25th to display their NASA Spinoff Creation, the All Terrain Powered Transport.  The four gentlemen worked on this Spinoff during the 2016-2017 school year and applied to attend MassCUE in October.  

Congratulations to a job well done!
