Take Your Passion…and Make It Happen*

Dear HTS Community:

Yesterday morning, the PTO voted to support and fund the HTS 1:1 Learning Initiative.  As a result, we will be ordering iPads for all students in grades 5-8 as well as one iPad for every teacher K-8 and an Apple TV for every classroom.  Although momentous (the total grant is over $100,000), the hard work has only begun.  Fortunately, this hard work is also very fun and engaging.  We will be communicating, primarily through this blog, over the summer months and hope you will partner with us throughout the 2012-2013 school year.

In the meantime, we will be configuring the devices and will schedule a parent-student-administrator meeting later in the summer to share pertinent information.  As always, feel free to share in the comments section of this blog or email me directly aanemone@hardingtwp.org.

Lastly, I would like to offer a special thanks to all committee members for their hard work:

Dr. Darren Petersen, Principal and Director of Curriculum, HTS

Amy Norris, Technology Coordinator, HTS

Tomas Hoffman, S.S. teacher, HTS

Julie Poole, L.A. teacher, HTS

Lisa Werner, L.A. teacher, HTS

Dr. Mike Gervis, Science teacher, HTS

Jim Gast, PeggNet Computers

Toni Congedo, HTS parent

Abby Giordano, HTS parent

Nancy Priscu, HTS parent

Tracey Walter, HTS parent

Linda Kearns, HTS parent

Jen Flanagan, HTS parent

Nanette DiTosto, HTS parent

Craig Grant, HTS parent….and everyone else that assisted in this endeavor.

 

Sincerely,

Alex Anemone
