“Congratulations”
TabPilots
October Students of the Month
The new TabPilot Android Tablets have finally
arrived at West Bainbridge Elementary. Decatur
County Board Member, Mr. Kelvin Bouie, and his
wife, Mrs. Gail Bouie, dropped by the school to see
and interact with a few kindergarten students using
the new tablets. While Mrs. Bouie helped a student,
Mr. Bouie decided he needed one of his own to
explore! The students were very excited about the
things that they could do on the tablets. As they were
leaving, every one of them said thank you and
wanted to know when they could use the tablets
again.
