We’re about a month and a half into the 2013-14 school year and the iPads purchased with a grant from the Bemis Company Foundation are being put to good use.

DSCF4327I recently visited Beth Verboomen’s classroom at Houdini Elementary to see how the students were using the iPads. They were totally engaged and independently learning – everything from math – to spelling – to reading! The iPads have been enhanced with additional funds from the school district for licensing of apps, headphones with microphones and blue tooth keyboards.

Post-Crescent Media published an article and short video about this iPad initiative. You can view it here: http://post.cr/1970pFc.

This grant will also be featured at the district’s Business Partnership Breakfast and in our annual report which is due out in December.

Please contact us at AEF if you have any questions or would like to learn how you can support this and other initiatives within our community.
