Hi!
As technology teacher here at St. Jude the Apostle School, I do my best to keep our students up-to-date with the latest technology, to better prepare them for the world they will know and into which they will grow. They are an amazing group of kids - that wonderful combination of kindhearted and curious that make you glad to step into the classroom each day - from the smallest, our 3 year old Preschoolers, right up to the tallest, our 6th graders.

Finding funding for the latest and greatest tools is an ongoing challenge, especially when coupled with the low tuition rates we strive to maintain, in order to serve as many of our local families as possible. We want our students to have the very best we can give, but to do so, we need your help.

We are starting this campaign to raise the needed funds to purchase enough iPads to allow each classroom to have 3 or 4 to use each day, and for a charging station in which to store the iPads, readying them for the next day's use each evening (which explains our oddly precise goal amount).

Any and all monies raised will be used to purchase as many units as we can, up to this goal of 40 and a cart and beyond... in a perfect world, each student would have their own... let's see... that would be $450 times 350 or so students... well... 40 would be a really nice place to start!

Thanks for all you do, and for any help you can offer!
