SCHOOL DISTRICT OF BLACK RIVER FALLS
We will soon be completing our third year at the high school of issuing a laptop computer to all of our students. We have the opportunity to lease new laptops at a favorable rate this summer, so we will be acquiring new laptops for our students next school year. Because we feel the current laptops continue to have value, we are offering them to the public for purchase.
The School District of Black River Falls is selling used HP Folio 9470m laptops for $175 ea. Laptops will be sold as‐is until supplies last.
Laptops contain Intel Core i3‐217U processor, 1.8 GHz, 14 inch LED backlit HD anti‐glare screen, integrated webcam, Intel HD 4000 Graphics, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD hard drive, backlit keyboard, wireless LAN, and a 4 cell battery with charging cord.
Interested parties should complete the purchase agreement form and remit $175 to the SD of BRF at the District Office, 301 N 4th St., Black River Falls, WI 54615 by 4 p.m., June 3, 2016 to reserve your laptop. Laptops contain the operating system and no other software. Laptops will be wiped and reset to factory settings after school is out and will be available for pickup by June 30. No technology support will be provided.

As part of our monthly reading incentives, students were asked to read 350 minutes in the month of March. From all those students, we selected 2 students randomly to be “Student Readers” at the public library during their Friday Story Hour. Grady Meek, 2nd grader, and Asuka Cusick, 3rd grader, were our lucky students! Each story hour has a theme. This Friday’s happened to be REPTILES! There was a visit from some real-life reptiles, including a snake, lizard and turtle! The fabulous Rhonda Groth at the public library led the story hour students through some additional learning, songs and finger plays.
Our students were honored to take on this leadership role. They practiced reading their selected books related to reptiles many times, so as to put their best foot forward in reading for our future Black River Falls students that were present. They did an outstanding job and were so excited! They even had parents and family members who joined the event to support them. What an wonderful partnership between the community and our schools highlighting the important skills of reading!
