Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help save the iPads in our classroom from extinction! Our class had 10 iPads donated to use for research and projects. We need to protect these from potential harm . . . even extinction! We recently had a close call when one iPad was accidentally dropped! Please donate to save them today!

We are an awesome team of fourth graders in Phoenix, Arizona that encourages each other and perseveres at all times!

We have 121 fourth grade friends that use the 10 iPads regularly in our science and Arizona History class. We also share the iPads with the math, reading, and writing teachers. Our school is located in a middle class neighborhood. We all share our love for learning with four adoring teachers. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our goal is the same . . . be the best that you can be at all times by following the six traits of good character! We celebrate differences and embrace change.

My Project

Can you imagine a soldier going into battle without protective gear? Or a police officer not wearing a bullet proof vest? Every day in our room our iPads have to go into battle without protective gear! We use the iPads for many different activities . . . which can be risky business in fourth grade. Protective gear will enable us to use the iPads without risk of extinction! We would be able to pursue our journey for knowledge knowing that fatal attacks would be minimized by using the best protection available!

Your donation will greatly improve the quality of life for the iPads in our classroom, which in turn will improve the way students receive information in the 21st century.

Students need to realize the importance of taking care of expensive technology and protecting the investment that our PTSA has made.
