Our school is a small, rural elementary school located in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Twenty-three percent of our students receive free or reduced lunches. Though we are rural, we are part of the second largest school district in Nevada.
Because our region is rapidly growing and our student population has increased, our school added a second 4th grade classroom--ours!
Our classroom provides a safe, respectful, and responsible learning environment for all students to grow academically and personally.
Our 4th grade classroom currently has seven Chromebooks, making the technology to student ratio 3:1. I am requesting the donation of five more Chromebooks.
Gaining these devices will bring our student to technology ratio down to 2:1, allowing students to work in collaborative pairs.
Five Chromebooks will greatly support our classroom learning by providing consistent and immediate access to digital tools and websites.
We will use the Chromebooks throughout our day in all areas of content—researching, writing, creating digital presentations, publishing and using individual websites such as Khan Academy, Dreambox, Readworks and RAZ Kids to support and enhance our learning.
