Happy Orange Ribbon Week, Soleado Families!
As of today, we have received another $220 in donations to Soleado and a pledge towards an iPad from one of our families. Thank you to those families for helping to support our school!!!
For the last two years, our teachers and staff have worked together, as well as on their own time, to find effective, innovative, ways to incorporate iPad use in the classrooms. But right now, our 425 students share fewer than 50 iPads, which means that our teachers are not able to bring iPad-based learning into the classrooms as well as they would like. Although it seems strange for those of us who were educated before computers entered classrooms, the truth is that computer-based learning is the future for today's students. At Soleado, we want them to be comfortable with using computers for problem-solving, researching, classroom interaction and more to help prepare them for high school and beyond. But, we need everyone's help to do so.
Our goal for this week is to raise $5,000 so that we can purchase 10 iPads and cases. Please use this week as the excuse to get donations in before the end of the year, so that we can order the iPads before our winter break.
I cannot thank our Soleado community enough for all that they do for our students and teachers. For those who have not donated this year, please help us with a donation in any amount. If our families pull together, we will reach our goal for the week.
