Sharing "Great Moments at Dozier Elementary"

Hess and Erath 4th of July Join Hands to Help Dozier With Technology Goals

Hess donated another $16,000 to Dozier for technology on February 8, 2012. The money has been earmarked for updated classroom computers.

Since 2009, Dozier Elementary has journeyed toward gaining top technology resources using their school wide "Eye on Tech" Campaign. The project was designed to build a technology rich environment through the hard work of the faculty, coupled with the help of community sponsors and grants.

Last year with the assistance of area sponsors and small grants, the school was able to purchase a mobile lab, promethean boards and several computers. Since then, Dozier Elementary educators and students have been actively utilizing the new resources and have shown impressive growth with the updated equipment in the school.

Though they have already received effective tools, the school's Ed Tech leaders know that focusing on continued growth is a critical component in the equation. In short, as educators, they know that their "Eye on Tech" campaign is what is needed in building a stronger educational technology program for the school.

With the assistance of several local businesses the past three years, each of the donors have been key players assisting Dozier in building their program.

Without a doubt, Hess and the Erath 4th of July Association are two groups that have played a vital role in the school's quest.

In February 2012, both groups once again helped by each offering their third donation in providing a 21st century classroom environments for the school. Hess' $16,000 and the Erath 4th of July's $3200 has been earmarked this year to upgrade classroom computers by purchasing twenty six Windows 7 classroom computers.

Hess reps Shelby Bernard, Derek Lee and Helen Landry delivered the $16,000 check to Dozier Elementary Principal Karla Toups on February 8th. While there, the Hess group once again visited classrooms to see students and teachers utilizing the computer lab, promethean boards and more. Bernard shared that he and several colleagues "have seen many technology rich lessons at Dozier Elementary and the company knows how dedicated the leaders and faculty members are toward moving forward through these powerful resources."

One week after Hess made their donation, the Erath 4th of July presented their $3200 check to Principal Karla Toups and Assistant Principal Natalie Hebert. Erath 4th of July Association President and local attorney Robert B. Vincent stated "It is great to see our money benefiting the students of our community by providing the tools that engage the students use of 21st Century technology."

With a mind set of continued technology growth and an "Eye on Technology" Dozier Elementary is committed toward moving forward to offer their students technology rich lessons, along with updated equipment that helps enrich lessons.
