My Students

One sure fire way to engage students and level the playing field is to give them equal access to technology. This project provides all students access to 21st century learning and skill development regardless of socioeconomic status.

We are a free, public, charter school with lottery entrance: our sixth grade has 105 students who come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds since entry is completely by lottery chance.

Their incomes, races, and availability vary. Students have parents that are engaged and care deeply. Their involvement is helpful. We serves students in seven nearby counties. Some of our students help work on their farm, and others live on a bus route. Our make-up is: 40% white, 20% black, 19% Hispanic/

My Project

In our Social Studies classroom students will use the Chromebooks to become Geographers, Historians, and Archaeologist as they collect data, analyze primary sources on-line, read about history, and travel the world on virtual field trips. They will create videos to enhance their learning and explore the world's future as they recreate the past.

Your donation will allow our students to accomplish learning through independence and maturity.

Currently, some students must share Chromebooks, due to the lack of availability of Chromebooks on our team. Further, some teachers must sacrifice the ability to use technology, due to lack of resources. Placing more Chromebooks in the hands of each student helps propel our team to ensure each students has equal access to learning.
