AJHS home and school club builds a GoFundMe site for technology and they need our help!
The Aptos Junior High Home and School Club has taken up the challenge and is asking all AJHS stakeholders, past, present and future, to help purchase technology needed for 21st century instruction and learning. We have set our sights on purchasing at least two new chrome book carts for Aptos Junior High School students (total cost is approximately $35,000.00.) These carts are mobile and can be used in all classrooms for a variety of instructional/education activities. Chrome books are lightweight, cost effective, and easy to use. Our students have quickly grown accustomed to using them to complete a myriad of individual and collaborative projects. Additional chrome carts will support our efforts to continue to integrate technology into our classrooms.
