Epson to the Rescue!

My students need four Epson LCD projectors to bring learning to life in the classrooms of our school.

My Students

Imagine classrooms of elementary students crowding around small computer screens to learn. We can change that with Epson LCD Projectors allowing us to shine our learning up on the white boards for all to see!

Our school is made up of a diverse group of kids.

Just over 75% are eligible for free or reduced priced meals and many do not have access to as many books as we'd like. Our school has two classes each of kindergarten through fifth grade students. In addition we have an on-site preschool, a school based health center, and a family resource center.

My Project

I am requesting four Epson LCD projectors to view videos, PowerPoint presentations, and online learning websites. New Epson LCD projectors will make a huge difference to our classrooms. New projectors will allow students sitting in the back of classrooms to see presentations clearly. Many of our elementary school students need to experience learning visually. Projecting things on the big screen is just what we need to help children meet with success.

The achievement gap between children from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and those from more affluent backgrounds is getting larger all the time.

Students from schools like ours just don't have the same resources as kids from affluent schools. This project will help me to give our students the chance they need to learn with cutting edge technology from Epson!
