Holy Cross Alumni Donate 60 Tablets

By IMS Staff

When our teachers in Kindergarten through 5th grade came back for the 2019-2010 school year, they were met with a wonderful surprise…

During the past school year the students, faculty and parish collected pennies for our Pennies for Tablet Drive. They ended up collecting over $600 in pennies!

Meanwhile, the graduating classes of the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s had their 2nd Annual Class Reunion at Holy Cross and they wanted to make a donation to the school. When they heard about the Penny Drive they decided to go one step beyond and donated $3,200!

Those funds were used to purchase 60 Amazon Fire 8 Tablets, to be used by the K-5th grade classrooms and students. The teachers were so excited to receive the tablets, which will be instrumental in helping them to manage small group instruction. The $600 will go towards purchasing high-quality headphones for the tablets.

Thank you to all of our wonderful alumni for supporting Holy Cross Catholic School!
