PTSO Raises Money For Smart Boards
Parkwood's PTSO is on a mission to make sure the every classroom has a Smart Board. This year they are hoping to buy 5 new Smart Boards for classrooms that do not have them. There are currently two fundraising events taking place.
Old cell phones, ink cartridges, MP3 players, iPods, laptops, and GPS systems can be recycled and turned into cash. PTSO collection bins are located in the front lobby by Mrs. Reeder's desk and in the main office.
Parents and community members are also asked to "Invest in a Teen" by making donations to help PTSO reach its $15,000 fundraising goal. Information about this program can be found here.
When asked about PTSO's Smart Board goal for this year, Cheryl Billotto, parent of a junior at Parkwood, said, "As a parent I found out that we are not 100% in our technology area, yet our middle school is. It is vital for us to have updated technology to give our high schoolers every opportunity to be competitive both here at their own school and with other schools in the county. These children need every advantage to be able to be successful in furthering their future education."
Please help PTSO add Smart Boards to Parkwood's classrooms this year. 21st Century learners need 21st Century tools and Parkwood's PTSO is working hard to make that a reality.
