The Geek Squad is a program for 5th graders that La Mariposa started last year. Fourth grade teachers were asked to observe students who were responsible enough to be on the Geek Squad for the next year. There is a group of about 8-10 students. Mr. Greenlinger and Ms. Barnes train the squad to help in the computer lab. The jobs include turning on the computers in the morning and shutting them down at the end of the day, progress reports of the computers and monitors, and replacing any monitors that are damaged or old. Sometimes we even help the substitute teachers with turning on the monitors and the smart boards. Our final job for the end of the year will be to train the new Geek Squad for next year. Being on the Geek Squad is really cool and I felt very honored I was chosen.
