Middle-schoolers reach tech goal

Language arts teacher Carrie Glass along with her seventh and eighth classes moved one step closer to completing their dream of writing a guide to West Shore to assist incoming students with the transition after securing the technology component through a campaign on Donors Choice.org.

“Our electronics are on the way,” Glass said.  “Next up is working on paying for the publishing.”

Seventh and eighth graders rejoiced for Glass’ successful campaign on Donors Choice. org.

“It’s really awesome that we got the [electronic] tablets, and it’s going to be really fun writing the book,” seventh-grader Drew C. said.

With the class goal of getting two electronic tablets reached, Glass already has big plans for trying to publish the book.

“Our publishing committee is especially thankful for the ability to communicate with vendors and contributors via email from the classroom,” Glass said. “I look forward to supervising the students as they lead this project.”

Some may question the purpose of trying to purchase the electronic tablets, but the idea in Glass’ mind in clear and has previously stated this on the Donors Choice web site.

“A Samsung tablet will allow students to research publishing/technical writing and email potential contributors/vendors,” Glass wrote.
