Document Cameras for the Classrooms

Beattie Elementary is in need of updating the document cameras in the classrooms.  The current document cameras will soon be outdated making it increasingly difficult to connect to the newly installed computers and projectors.   

Document cameras are connected to the wall-mounted projectors to display a document or tools that are being used in the classroom.  The document camera provides a visual model for students to follow during the instruction. This provides a way for students to view the teacher to model the work using the same paper document or tools the student is using. Teachers can project books as they read. Students can show their work to the class.  This allows for greater discussion and maintains student attention by projecting the image on a large screen. Teachers are able to face and not have their backs to the classroom when using the document camera. Requesting $1,426 plus cost reimbursement.

A World of Drums! NEW CLASS at Lincoln Northeast

The LNE Music department is in need of your help to fund a completely NEW class being offered at school this year: World Drumming. 

At Lincoln Northeast, we are proud to be amongst the most diverse schools in the city. We have many students with different experiences and cultural backgrounds. Our biggest goal as a music program at LNE has been to provide music opportunities to all students who wish to have them. One outlet we chose to grow upon our musical diversity is by offering a completely new course, World Drumming. It is a culmination of styles of music that is played across the globe, not just here in America. We hope that we can share our interpretations of music to all different types of students, just as we hope they will share their musical experiences with us. These drums are the first step to outfitting our class towards success. Thank you all for your contributions!

North Star High

French Immersion Camp

Every other year, the French teachers from all over the state run an immersion French camp for grades 9-12. The students meet kids from all over the state, participate in musical competitions, art projects, games, break-out boxes, and other competitions -- all in French.  The French teachers donate their time at Camp Carol Joy Holling, and students are asked to pay around $75, which includes all activities, a bunkbed room, and French food prepared by the camp cook. This cost is often prohibitive for the students at North Star, and many will not sign up for this reason alone.

Your gifts will help as many as 11 or 12 North Star students attend the camp. I would appreciate even enough to send one student from LNS to this camp.

The camp will run in March 30, 2019 at Camp Carol Joy Holling in Ashland. Payment would be to the Nebraska American Association of Teachers of French, since the NAATF pays up front. Requesting $1,000 plus cost reimbursement.

Kids who have gone in the past have returned to their French classes with a huge boost in confidence about French, as well as several new friends! Any and all funding would be appreciated!  Merci d'avance!
