Imagine, in the year 2020, being a student unable to access the internet at home. How could this child get the same education as classmates once schools were closed and students all over the country began learning from home? Sadly, there were hundreds of students right here in the North Penn School District this past March who were in this unfortunate position. Not only were they falling behind in their school work, but as one third grader told us, “I miss my teachers and friends.”
This is where the NPSD Educational Foundation knew they could help and through a successful fundraising campaign raised more than $41,000 for internet hotspots and access for hundreds of families in our schools. Our third grader and many others were able to reconnect with educators and classmates to continue their North Penn education. The initiative was one of our biggest endeavors yet and showed just how #NorthPennStrong this community truly is.
But this is just the beginning of what North Penn students need in this new educational landscape. With the challenges of virtual, hybrid and in-person learning, we know we have only scratched the surface of how the Foundation can continue to support our students, staff and families. Our students and families have shown resilience during these ever-changing times as our teachers continue to adapt new tools to teach students who are both at home and in front of them in their classrooms. North Penn staff have great ideas for this new learning atmosphere to provide innovative and inspiring experiences for our students.
With your help, we will support these ideas to enhance the classrooms and education at North Penn. We have proven that together, we are #NorthPennStrong. Your donation will help take us to the next level... making us #NorthPennStronger!
