In the 21st century, online technology is a way of life and providing the tools to enhance the online learning experience is a District priority.
We are pleased to be able to offer grade 4-7 students at Gilmore free access to a Microsoft Office 365 cloud based account. It includes a personal email address as well as access to the most recent versions of Microsoft Office tools, such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote and more.
