Each year we appeal to the generosity of our community during our annual fundraiser to help us purchase technology and program enhancements … and our recent Spring Fling event was a tremendous success. Each year we direct the money generated to a variety of program enhancements (e.g. special activities, author visits, indoor recess games, outdoor recess equipment … etc.) as well as technology (e.g. computers, tablets, robotics … etc.). Indeed, our ongoing investments in technology serves us particularly well, and we are continually improving on our instructional abilities to access the world beyond the classroom using technology.
We wanted to take a moment to acknowledge you –and our whole community—for your collective generosity. We received the above shipment today –a number of iPads and over forty Chromebooks, through a cost-sharing program where we were able to match dollar-for-dollar a portion of the money we raised with a technology grant. Every year when we say ‘your fundraising dollars make a difference’ –we want to emphasize that they absolutely do. This technology will be in students’ hands across the school as early as next week, and this is only one area of investment we’re intending on making.
We thank you for your support of the school … and we look forward to continuing to serve our students in the months ahead.
