Classroom Technology at Wilson: The Chromebook Throwdown

Now Through October 15th

The Wilson PTA and Hillsdale Community Foundation have collaborated to buy a mobile computer lab for Wilson students. This mobile lab consists of 34 Dell Chromebooks, a Wireless Access Point (WAP) and a re-charging cart for storage and transport around the school. The cost of this mobile lab is $12,250. Thank you PTA and HCF for your support of Wilson students!

The Chromebook Throwdown is a call to action for our families to contribute a portion of the cost to purchase another one.

Donation amounts warrant a corresponding level of acknowledgment:

$1 - $50: Trojan Citizen – "Know the pride of Troy" --King Priam
$51 - $100: Trojan Warrior – "Hector's Homies"
$99 - $250: Trojan Captain – "Paris' Posse"
above $250: General Aeneus' Club – Founded Rome after the slaughter by the Greeks

Regardless of your ability to donate, we appreciate the support we receive from this community.

Classroom technology for student use is seriously lacking in our core classrooms. These two mobile labs are the beginning of our effort to improve that situation moving forward. We would like to make our order by October 15th, please donate now! Your donations are tax deductible.

Make your donation online with a credit card, or send a check to WHS/Chromebook Throwdown, 1151 SW Vermont St., 97219.
