Disney Does It Right!

My students need an iPad to document their work on environmental projects and create multimedia announcents to inspire other students to do the same!

My Students

Disney is one of the cleanest places on the planet. My students want to inspire their peers to make our school "The Cleanest Place on Earth!"

We are a Title 1 school located in a small town in East Texas.

Unfortunately, most of our students are living in poverty and have little access to technology. We also have a large number of Dyslexic and ELL (English Language Learner) students. Although they face many challenges, our students come to school eager to learn and manage to achieve their academic goals.

My Project

iPads have a variety of video and photo editing applications that will allow my students to create fabulous multimedia presentations they can use to inspire their peers to make our school the "The Cleanest Place on Earth!" In addition to learning to take care of our planet, they will be encouraging others to do the same!

We have a supportive administration, bright students and an awesome staff, but recent budget cuts have hit our building hard.

Please help me get the latest technology for a classroom of deserving students.
