Help the Annual Appeal Finish Strong by Friday! Give Today!
Exciting news... we've reached our budgetary goal, a few days before the end of the drive on Friday! But let's not stop there. At 50%, our participation rate is still well shy of our goal of 100%.
Plus, if we raise extra, we can support new, amazing intiatives at Burbank. Last year extra funds raised supplied the school with 60 Chromebooks and 2 charge carts, which are being utilized by students in exciting ways. Here is one teacher's account:
"The fourth grade teachers of the Burbank school feel very fortunate to have Chromebooks to utilize in the classroom. These Chromebooks have enhanced our teaching and improved student learning across the curriculum. Last year, when we first received the Chromebooks, we put them to use right away. Students began working on their end of the year project, the infamous expert books. The end product was incredible... As students worked on their books using Google Docs, teachers were able to provide important comments during the editing and revising process which was ongoing and productive.
For the 2017-2018 school year, the fourth grade team will continue to use the Chromebooks throughout our writing curriculum. The teachers discovered that through Google Classroom they can share rubrics and exemplars that students can easily access and refer to during their writing process. We are also incorporating Chromebooks into math, reading, social studies, and science... It is our goal to have every student not only use Chromebooks everyday but also to be a part of Google Classroom which streamlines assignments, focuses on collaboration, and makes communication between teachers and students more meaningful and productive." — Mrs. Ames, 4th Grade Teacher
