My Students

My students need laptops and an iPad case, and to be able to become 21st Century savvy!

My students attend a high poverty school where almost all of the students receive free or reduced lunch.

All of the students are currently in middle school and a vast majority of them are special needs students. They are some of the sweetest children that you will ever meet and they put their best effort into everything they do all the time. They love to learn in new and exciting ways. These laptops and ipad with case will introduce them to a whole new world.

My Project

They will use the laptops and ipad almost every day during small group instruction . When they come to the table to do their small group activity on writing they will be able to do all their research and publish their work. The laptops will also be used when they are working on their independent writings. These laptops and iPad with case will allow us to promote confidence for academic success.

These laptops and ipad with case will be used for years to come.

It will not only impact my students this year but my students for years to come. So your donation will have impact students success going forward.
