Tools for School

Help me give my students a Chromebook and ear plugs for presentations.

My Students

My students are active. They are students that love to learn. As we prepare to get ready for college, my students are really interested in Career Development. They are eager to research College scholarships and ways to be funded while attending college.

Finding ways to keep students motivated

My students are 11 and 12th grade students preparing for College. The age group we are working with is ages 16-19 years of age.

As we know, high school has been a struggle for some.

Finding a way to keep the students motivated and eager to attend a college or Military would be great.

My Project

The items donated will help the students in having access to be able to use the Chromebook to find college and scholarship information. It will be very beneficial for the students to utilize this equipment in their free time. They will be able to research online and also find study guides of ACT prep classes.

Most of our students is unable to utilize the school library due to scheduling.

Most students do not have access to the World Wide web unless they are at library.

This will give the students the opportunity to research and prepare for their future endeavors. It will also give students the opportunity to be able to be successful in researching the best scholarships that available for them. Due to the funding for our school district, the items donated will be very beneficial for them.

We asked that you give our students the next chance in their lives to be able to be successful. Without the proper tools, it is hard for a student to study, research or meet their potential. The items will allow the students to work hard to prepare for the next step in being successful. They will be able to utilize these Chromebooks in finding many ways to find scholarships that will fit their need.

Although, we are only able to receive two, these books will be shared amongst each student.
