Student iPad Mini Campaign

 

Dear parents, grandparents and friends of our Indian Hills community,

            We are thrilled to announce the kick off of our February fundraising effort…….”LOVE YOUR SCHOOL!”  We are working in conjunction with our new librarian and friend, Carlynn Christian, as we raise money to buy 10-15 new Ipad mini’s for our library and classroom use.

            Teachers will be able to check out Ipad mini’s to use for projects, presentations, literacy and so much more.  Educational Apps encourage creativity, innovation, and collaboration.  The mobility of tablet devices make it easy to take classroom learning outside.  Most importantly, we need students to be technologically literate to prepare them for high school, college and careers. 

            We need you!  Please help us in our fundraising efforts.  Send Indian Hills a Valentine in the form of a cash or check donation to this effort as you “LOVE YOUR SCHOOL!”  Each teacher will have a large Valentine’s themed envelope in their classroom and your student may bring cash or check donations to school any day between February 1st and February 15th.  These donations will be taken to the office directly.  You may also donate with a credit card as you visit our brand new BOOT website.  Please visit indianhillsboot.org and click on the DONATE icon.

            Families may donate one entire ipad mini for the district price of $365.00.  We will have your family’s name displayed on the actual ipad mini that you donate in the form of a sticker or engraved.  If you are willing to donate the entire ipad mini, please contact Carlynn, Rebecca or Nancy.    

            You may also catch a glimpse of our Indian Hills students campaign videos they have created to “pitch” this fundraising effort.  Visit the Indian Hills school website to view these.  With this campaign we are asking you to support increased resources and learning at Indian Hills.

            If you have additional questions or concerns please contact Carlynn Christian, carlynn.christian@slcschools.org, Rebecca Fredrick at 801 520-5114 or Nancy Chisholm at 801 556-8865.

            Thank you for your interest, support and generosity.

 

                                                                                 Warmly,

                                                                                 Carlynn, Rebecca, and Nancy
