A generous donor has given $10,000 for classroom technology upgrades for the 130 children who attend St. Patrick School in Downtown Memphis. The only catch to the gift is…St. Patrick School has to raise $10,000 to match the anonymous donor’s generosity. You can give as little as $10 or pick any amount you’d like to donate. St. Patrick Catholic School is located in downtown Memphis in the lowest income zip code in the city – 38126. 100% of our students are on financial scholarships and 95% are on free or reduced lunch.
We have increased enrollment over the past 3 years and our test scores in Math and in Reading are on the rise. The next step to improving the lives of our students is to improve the classroom technology. We have a plan to add SmartBoard Interactive Whiteboards to each of our 9 classrooms. SmartBoards create a more active and engaging learning environment and make learning fun for the teachers and the students! Rhiannon Thomas is the Principal at St. Patrick School and she could answer any questions you might have about your tax deductible gift at Rhiannon Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org . This is a great way to help young people bridge the “digital divide” and truly learn from caring teachers who thanks to your help can use the latest technology.
