Being a public school, we know that Santa won't step a foot into the door, so resourceful people need to look at other sources of funding. That's why I am so grateful to the Public School Foundation and the Stroud Roses Foundation for generously funding four iPads for Ephesus Elementary.
Google forms, which then throws it all into a neat google spreadsheet. Four iPads translates into helping at least 100 kids. Tracking progress is important! Plus, for those kids who need an extra little nudge, there are thousands of educational apps out there for them to spend a little time exploring. A teacher can build this time into a child's schedule.
I just filled out a purchase order today for these four invaluable tools, and can't wait until they arrive!
For those of you in Chapel Hill, check out the website for the Public School Foundation! This is a wonderful organization that is really making a difference in the education of our children.
