Norup International School is in the running to win a $50,000 grant and it needs your help.
The school is a contender in the fourth annual Power A Bright Future program in which the nominee with the most votes by Dec. 19 will receive $50,000 from the Clorox Company.
"If Norup were to win this grant, it would enable us to purchase grade level COWs (carts on wheels) with iPads to facilitate 'on-the-spot' learning," Norup IB coordinator and learning specialist Denise Tomlinson said. "Presently, all classes in our K-8 building need to make an appointment to use the aging PCs we have in our two labs.
"The Clorox grant would provide the funds to increase all students' access to technology thereby improving their opportunities to improve research and communication skills," she said.
