We were thrilled to raise $55,113! This is substantially more than amounts raised through INVEST campaigns in previous years. Based on teacher input, this money was used to update and increase classroom technology. These purchases have been made yet MNPS must format them. We are hopeful we will have them in classrooms by March.
Fun Run Purchases:
5 sets of 23 laptops (one set per grade)
5 computer carts (one per grade)
15 Ipads (some EE, RA)
15 Ipad covers
15 Ipad earbuds
Headphones for 23 computers on 3 carts (3rd and 4th use their own)
6 laptops (EE)
Intervention Curriculum: Hands on Equations (Math) X2
This totals around $50,000.
Our treasurers are working hard to come up with a technology plan for maintaining up-to-date classroom technology over time. We hope to begin budgeting annually for technology updates so as not to have to repeatedly dedicate the majority of our Fun Run funds to this purpose.
Thank you for investing in our school!
