Class of 2013 Gift Fund
Honor your graduating senior by donating to the Class of 2013 Gift Fund with the goal of providing iPads, enough for an entire classroom, to be used throughout the school.
Jeridan Clark, MTSD IT Manager says "Homestead High School's iPad cart is constantly checked out for use in Math, Science, English, and Social Studies class. The iPad cart is reserved several weeks in advance. A new cart of iPads would help meet the need for more mobile devices used to enhance student learning."
Brett Bowers, HHS Principal says "Handheld computing opens a new door for classroom teachers, allowing them to take instruction in a completely different direction. Few tools can match an iPad in terms of their ability to allow for personalized, high-engagement learning across content areas."
Please consider making a donation honoring your child and the Class of 2013!

These exercises make the experience "real" as well as provide reinforcement to the curriculum that is laid out in the student’s textbook....Learn More
