Put a Little More Fruit in Your Child’s Diet
Add an APPLE!
Are you tired of your child learning about technology via the video games they play? Would you like their school lessons to be enhanced with excitement and discovery? Well this year’s SFA Fund-A-Need is the answer you (and we) have been seeking! This year’s Fund-A-Need is all about…Connection and Synergy. That is why we are aiming to put 10 iPads and 4 Chromebooks in every St. Francis classroom!
Imagine sitting at your desk or in a meeting at work and your phone pings. You pick it up and see, through our new Seesaw app, that your child just uploaded videos of him/herself reading for the first time, or reciting the “I Have A Dream…” speech in front of the class, or finally solving that complicated algebra problem. Seesaw, an online digital learning portfolio, empowers students to document what they are learning in school. There are many applications that can be used to enhance student’s education: Accelerated Reader, codeSpark Academy, iMovie, Robotics Club, and graphic and visual arts just to name a few. Our students will be exposed to the skills and knowledge of “21st century and beyond” learning.
These devices will allow YOU to empower your child to take ownership of their education. YOU are entrusting your child’s teachers to challenge each student to achieve their greatest potential. YOU are enabling yourself, as a parent, to become an active partner in guiding and shaping your child’s academic success. With these new devices and learning applications you will SEE exactly what your student is doing and learning in school AS IT HAPPENS!
You can help us help your child by putting iPads and Chromebooks in every classroom through your donation to this year’s Fund-A-Need.
