Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember your old boxy computer that took 15 minutes to load and crashed before you saved your work? Yes, that is what our students are still faced with. Help our students start a new classroom computer center with a laptop!
Our school is located in an urban area of Southern California.
We are a Title I school with over 20 different languages spoken by our students. Armenian, Spanish and Korean are the 3 top languages! We service over 800 kids with 25 amazingly dedicated teachers and a few other wonderful support providers.
Our students do not always feel successful due to language challenges. In my classroom, I love to provide opportunities such as creating art and having student work in the garden so that they have other outlets to express their amazing talents!
My students need a working computer so that they can have access to technology. Starting a computer center in the classroom will help students conduct research on-line, type out reports, and play educational games. Access to technology is a fundamental right for all students, not just a few. This is only the beginning! I have a dream that my students will have a 21st century classroom. It all starts with a click...of a mouse that is!
Your support is the reason why students still have ANY extra books, art, music or any other joy in the classroom!
Our classroom survives solely through the pocketbook of myself, classroom parents, and your generous donations. Help be the one that keep students' hopes ALIVE!
