IPOD TOUCH DONATIONS
Over the past year, teachers and administration have worked hard to transform Leicester High School from a traditional american High School to a high tech hub of learning.  We have made significant investments in Wifi, Chromebooks for students and training for teachers.  While Chromebooks and laptops are important tools in our transformation, teachers can do many great things with simpler devices like iPod Touches.  We would like to ask families that have older apple devices to consider donating them to the High School to be used by students.  Our plan is to use them in classrooms not as mp3 players, but as graphing calculators, video recorders, and data collection stations for science experiments.  In exchange for donating a device, your son/daughter will be entered into a drawing for a $25.00 Dunkin Donuts gift card.  We appreciate your continued support of our school and its students.
