PTA Recent Events!!!

The Aldrin PTA received an approval by vote from the general PTA membership to spend $19,000 of PTA money to purchase new laptops and other technology needs for the school. The vote was at the general PTA meeting on June 9. The following items were approved for purchase:

· A laptop cart to support the 16 new laptops received by Aldrin from FCPS earlier this spring. The cart will allow the school to keep the laptops in use and accessible to support all grade levels. (Cost: Approximately $1,350)

· Sixteen (16) new laptops and an associated laptop cart. These will augment/replace existing, older laptops and provide additional computing power throughout the school. The laptops will be used school-wide for various academic projects. (Cost: Approximately $14,166)

· Two mobile Smart Boards and two projectors that will be used to support activities and student access in areas that do not have permanent equipment. Examples include: Back to School Night in the cafeteria or gym; Open House; use in the book room during Collaborative Learning Team meetings or at Responsive Instruction meetings. (Cost: Approximately $3,000)

The PTA will be able to fund the purchase over the summer so that the items will be in place by the start of the 205-16 school year. These purchases will be made directly by the school via Fairfax County Public School procurement.

The PTA would like to thank everyone who attended the meeting and those who expressed support of this request. If you have any questions please contact Halé Brickhouse.
