K-2 Students Extend Learning With New Tablets. For the last several years we have worked to secure technology that will help our students extend their learning, without replacing interactions between students and teachers. We believe in a more 'blended' way of using technology to support, but not replace, interactions. With Covid-19 we have had to adjust some technology tools especially to help our youngest learners.
We were very fortunate to secure a grant through L & L Products in Romeo that provided fifty brand new tablets to our kindergarten through second grade students. In addition to this generous donation by L & L, the school district purchased an additional 110 tablets through CARES Act funds for our youngsters. These purchases have been a game changer as students can record themselves reading on SeeSaw, complete independent math work on IXL, listen or read stories on RAZ kids, and much more.

Krause Early Learning Center Earns
5-Star Rating from State of Michigan
Armada’s Krause Early Learning Center has worked incredibly hard over the last few years to offer more programs and opportunities for our students. Our preschool teachers and aides have added new curriculum components, sought training, and revamped several practices to ensure our youngest learners get off to the best start possible.
This work has paid off as the Early Learning Center has been recognized by the state of Michigan with the highest rating - a fantastic 5 Star Rating! If you have little ones that are preschool age, there is no better place to start than Krause Elementary’s Early Learning Center.
There are only 185 preschool programs in the state that have attained the 5-star rating. We are in the top 5% of preschool programs in the state. In order to achieve this rating, programs must follow the Department of Education Early Childhood Standards of Quality for Pre-Kindergarten.
