2021 Virtual Gala Fund-a-Need
At St. Michael Catholic School our mission is to “shape disciples of Jesus Christ by igniting the spiritual, social and academic growth of each child.” In order to live out this mission, St. Mike’s seeks every opportunity to expand excellence. Technology is key to providing a 21st Century excellent learning environment.
Did you know, on average our teachers and staff laptops are 4+ years old. COVID-19 and Distance Learning has forced teachers to use their laptops as teaching tools, no longer just a means of communicating with families. These old laptops are slow, heavy and lose charge quickly. Our teachers are limited with what’s possible as their key teaching tool is unreliable. THIS YEAR – we invite you to make a difference in the learning environment at St. Michael Catholic School through a gift to the 2021 Fund-A-Need: Microsoft Surface Laptop 3-13.5’-Core i5 1035G7-8GB
How will this impact St. Mike’s students? This will change the landscape of how teachers can communicate, educate and work with confidence that their teaching tools are dependable and reliable.
Features brought into the classroom include:
– Immediate feedback
– Various media types can be displayed
– Connections to computers, microscopes, cameras, and video cameras
New laptops put teachers back in control of creating interactive, engaging lessons. A gift of $1,250 helps us put one laptop into the hands of our teachers and staff. Please help us bring this invaluable piece of technology into each one of our classrooms. Any additional funds raised will be used in our technology department.
With the success of last year’s Fund-a-Need we were able to provide 12 new Smartboard, we could use an additional 10 to outfit all classrooms with modern technology in their classrooms.
Technology is the key to success and the way of our students future.
Thank you so much for your consideration and support.
Gifts to the school’s general fund support the purchase of academic materials for our students, ensure that we offer competitive salaries to our staff, and enable us to keep tuition at an affordable cost to our families. Thank you for considering a gift to the School’s General Fund.
