Mr. d. from Los Angeles CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Laptop Computer For Classroom

My students need 1 laptop computer.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hello, I teach a first grade class at a social justice magnet school. My students come from various economic backgrounds. Most students qualify for free lunches.

In our classroom we have several old turn of the millennium desktop computers; so old the salvation army wouldn't want them. The students use these for old games like math blaster and living books stories. I think they deserve to have a new laptop computer. With this, they can take turns creating documents and also go online to learn on some of the useful web sites available.

Your donation of this laptop computer to the class would be greatly appreciated and, I guarantee, used on a daily basis. Students will be able to write at their desk and save their work. The access to more modern technology, on a daily basis, will let them become more computer literate.

By donating to this project, you will give my students an advantage. By helping to provide the new laptop in the classroom, you will have helped level the playing field; allowing students who do not have access to such technology at home a chance to have such at school. Thank you.
