Technology Donations!

Though I have made several purchases this year to support our teachers during Distance Learning (instructional software, doc cameras, additional computer monitors), we will always welcome any Technology donations.

If you have any Desktop monitors that you are not using anymore, or would like to upgrade your current computer system with new equipment/hardware, we would be happy to accept any donation you could provide.

When teachers use Google Meet or Zoom, and share their screen for instruction with their students, they cannot view their screen and see their students at the same time. Hence the want for an additional computer monitor which would allow them to share their screen and view their students at the same time.

Please contact our school office our myself if you would like to donate to our school's technology needs. Thank You!

Library Newsletter:

Tell us how we can support you?

Below is a short survey created by the PTA to help the school and PTA better understand where it can help you with distance learning, who is interested in volunteering to help others with certain topics (no commitment by showing interest), and who would benefit from foreign language assistance. We understand the teachers may have asked similar questions in their classrooms at the start of the year. However, given the importance of ensuring all our families and students have the tools they need to succeed, please take a moment to fill out the short survey. It should only take 1 to 2 minutes.

Have a Great Weekend!!
