My Students

By the end of the school year, I would like my students to be able to proficiently access, analyze and present information digitally.

We have many students who are bused in from different parts of the city.

Our staff often sends home notices and letters in various languages in an attempt to engage families. Many students are eligible for free and reduced price lunch. We are a community school, which provides services to the immediate neighborhood.

My Project

My students need six additional Acer Chromebooks to enhance their learning. My students will use the Chromebooks to research information, access the Light Sail reading program and Khan Academy, and create multimedia presentations. Students will also communicate daily via Google Docs. This technology will allow students to gain the necessary skills, which will prepare them for college and career.

With access to technology my students will acquire many essential skills.

The Chromebooks will engage students and create new opportunities for learning and collaborating. This gift will surely make a difference in their lives.
