“Eye on Tech” campaign has proven fruitful in gaining
classroom computers, labs and Promethean Boards since
2009. With ongoing technological advances with tablets,
our next quest lies with bringing iPads into the
classroom. So much so that we have already launched a
“Sea of iPad Resources” website to help parents and
teachers bring great apps into the home and school.
Stacy Bodin, (part time) technology
specialist/webmaster and Principal Karla Toups have
created a grant to purchase an entire lab, however they
both understand that receiving that amount is almost
impossible. So in an effort to help, we have decided to
extend ourselves in asking local businesses to possibly
contribute $600 (or any type of monetary donation)
to be used to purchase iPads.
Though our wish would be to place iPad labs (mobile
cart with 10, 15 or 20 ipads), we are realistic in
this endeavor. We could begin small and place a few in
the school. In fact, our goal this year’s goal would be
to place at least one iPad at each of the seven grade
levels to start.
If your business would be interested in donating toward
one or more iPads, or even in making a small monetary
donation, please contact the school. If you or anyone
else wants to make a small personal contribution, that
would also be wonderful.
