My students need Microsoft Surface Pro to utilize Microsoft Office Products in the tech lab. This will help them with transition to High School technology.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Every day I greet my students with a high five or a handshake at the door. Students are eager to quickly enter our technology lab and begin the day's lesson. I have had previous students return to me, thanking me for preparing them for high school and they say I've done well.
My students are from an inner-city and while they have many challenges in life, they are strong and willing to fight for their future.
They are in love with technology and my classroom is set up to inspire creativity. With some help, I can help them achieve incredible technology projects. My school has a wonderful, inviting, safe culture that welcomes all students and parents to join our learning journey.
My classroom is almost fully equipped to provide one-on-one, computer to child, technology lessons to my K-8 grade students. Students are taught keyboarding starting in 2nd grade and when two students have to share a computer it’s difficult to keep them engaged and on task while one student waits, watching another student type. The Surface Pro is very fast and gives students a different experience in terms of keyboard size and using the track pad. Both of these experiences are very valuable for students to learn.
This Surface Pro will also be used for students to record and report on school events and sports games.
The images and articles written by students will be incorporated into a school blog.
