My students need an Apple 21.5 Mac computer and and external DVD drive.
Calling all Apple computer lovers in the Silicon Valley! HELLO! Are you there? Come on I can almost see Google from where I am. However, we are a public school class in a large city in the heart of Silicon Valley with one computer. Yes (gasp), that is right. We need a computer.
We are a public school without funding for about everything and next year will be worse.
I had hoped for a new computer next year, but that dream has faded. So today I am asking for an Apple Mac computer for my sweet kindergarten classroom. We love Apple, don't you? We love to use Apple, even the computer we have now that supports hardly any sites because of the outdated hardware. We still love Apple. I find it harder and harder to get on the Internet because the computer won't support most sites. My class is a beautiful class with a mixed high poverty level, but the students are so smart and wonderful. They make up all that surrounds you. They will be our future. We are a diverse school that embodies what San Francisco is: diversity, creativity, and now the new gold is embedded in the tech world. But, we are outdated, underfunded, and need a computer.
As you make a donation towards that Apple computer, think about the potential boss you could have in 20 years from now. Yes, she says, I was in a high poverty school, but one day a stranger came along and donated a computer to our classroom, and changed my life. True story. YOU make the difference. You can change a child's life. Better yet, your donation is tax-deductible! When we get to explore the Internet, we get to see pictures of the world, the outside, places we never dreamed. This is all because we get to see them on the Internet. There are so many scientific web sites especially about insects! More important, students in 2014, will be able to use the internet and explore the so many great sites that support their education. With your donation, you can change 22 students' lives and be the 'Apple' of their eyes.
Letting kindergarten students explore the computer in a classroom not only brings them up to speed to 2014 by letting them explore the Internet while we do science, language arts and math, but also lets them share their experience with their family.
There are so many sites that support classroom learning and we are hoping to get a computer that lets us explore. Making a change comes very simple. Most of my students do not have a computer at their home. This computer will have a profound effect.
