Chrome Books are used daily!

Rockford students utilize chrome books every day in multiple classes.  Chrome books provide students with opportunities to access information and develop research skills, communicate their ideas, and build strong digital citizenship skills.  RMS-CES Principal, Amy Denneson says, “Chrome books are an amazing instructional tool!  They engage students in learning and develop skills that will help them thrive in today’s global community!”

The Foundation continues to support student learning in the classroom. In the last year, community support through the Foundation has funded:

• 35 Chrome Books
• 8 ActivBoards
• iPads
• Science Calculators

Thank You for your support!

The Rockford Education Foundation would like to thank everyone who participated in the Back to the 80s fundraiser last Saturday evening.  It was a totally awesome time and most importantly we were able to raise incremental funds to support student learning through in-classroom tools, technology and materials.  There is so much that goes into producing an event like this and we thank everyone who donated, purchased, participated and helped in many and various ways.  We couldn’t have done it without you!
