Help Fund Ms. Walker's Request for AVID
8 Apple iPad minis and cases through Donorschoose.org
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a class developed for students who will be able to go to college with the support of our class.
These Apple iPad minis and accessories will be used to help students research and investigate information for projects and other tasks they have in school. The computer lab is not always available, and they need access to technology. These tablets would be a great gift to the students! Click here to donate now and use code "SPARK" to double donations.
