St. Mary’s School now a one-to-one school thanks to grant from St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation
Through the help of the St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation, St. Mary’s School in Oak Ridge is now the first diocesan school to offer “one-to-one” technology. The school used a grant of $29,200 to install wireless infrastructure and purchase dozens of Chromebooks to fulfill the goal of providing a Chromebook for every student in grades 1-8.
The St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation also awarded a second grant of $11,765 to replace the outdated and unrepairable public address system in the school.
On May 4, Bishop Richard F. Stika; Sister Mary Marta Abbott, diocesan superintendent of schools; and Terry Frank, Anderson County mayor were among several guests who attended the celebration, a press release said. The event began with a tour of the school to see how students use the Chromebooks in the classroom, from spelling games in first grade to experiments in the middle school science lab. [Read more…]
