Each year we appeal to the generosity of our community during our annual fundraiser to help us purchase technology and program enhancements (and we will, once again, in the months ahead). And each year we direct the money generated to a variety of program enhancements (e.g. Forest of Reading, author visits, indoor and outdoor recess kits … etc.) as well as technology (e.g. computers, tablets, robotics … etc.). Indeed, our investments in technology over the last number of years has served us exceedingly 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 this past Friday –dozens upon dozens of 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. Each year when we say ‘your fundraising dollars make a difference’ –we want to emphasize that they absolutely do. These Chromebooks will be in students’ hands across the school as early as next week, and this is only one area of investment we’ve been able to make.
We thank you for your support … and we look forward to sharing about our annual fundraiser early in the New Year.
