The North Branch Reformed Church Preschool teachers were surprised by our PTO President and Vice-President at our December meeting with the gift of TWO NEW IPADS and an ITUNES GIFT CARD to be used in our classrooms.
The PTO’s (Parent Teacher Organization) goal this year was to help add technology to our program. They run several fundraisers throughout the course of each school year to help fund their annual goals – Fall Family Festival, Barnes and Noble Bookfair, Plant and Flower Sale, and the Preschool Yearbook. Other PTO purchases have included a digital camera, library of Scholastic videos, playground equipment, Zinko-Tek Blocks, books, and more!
Our students already enjoy computers and listening centers (books on cd) in their classes and now they’re having fun getting to use the new “apps” on the iPads!
