Choose to Inspire an App Student Project

Forest Ridge Elementary is utilizing technology to inspire our students to Dare Greatly, Dream Big & Choose to Inspire! For Falconpalooza 2016, students to create an app! (Do not submit any app that has already been trademarked.) This app can express something about your student, a favorite hobby or something he/she would like to invent! Just maybe your student will stumble upon the next big technology breakthrough!

Use the space on this handout to create your app, cut out and return in your child’s take home folder by MONDAY OCTOBER 3, 2017.
