Every scholar at Sanders Clyde Creative Arts School now has an iPad assigned for their use in order to personalize their learning. Scholars are going through a training course this week to prepare them to use the devices for educational purposes and become a responsible digital citizen.

Gaillard Tour

Several Sanders Clyde Scholars, related arts teachers, and Ms. Sanders were given a tour of the Gaillard Auditorium during the construction. They learned about the construction, acoustics, craftsmanship, and the future plans for the building. Students were encouraged to give input into the future programming for the building. They are looking forward to the educational programs that will take place there as well.
