Thank you so very much for your generous donations that made this project possible. As our building finally begins to "catch up" in terms of technology, it is noticeably leaving a gap for our special education students. With your help, we know have the ability to use touch instead of a mouse. The mouse is very difficult for many of our students with special needs to use, and the touch monitor allows them to interact with the computer like never before.
Please know that this has made a big difference in the lives of many students. Thank you again for your support.

What an amazing way to start our week! Coming in to school this morning, I checked my email and was surprised by all of the incredibly generous donations that were made on behalf of my students. Every day these students face adversity and challenges that most of us could never even imagine. While we all try our best every day to make the best learning environment possible for each of our students, it is difficult to make the difference we would like to because of resources.
Please know that YOUR donation is now going to make it possible for special needs students to take part in the computer learning lessons they need and want. They can learn programs that will help them train for future jobs and will be able to play games with their peers.
I hope you know you have done something really amazing today, and I hope you can feel the love we are sending your way!
