Thank you so much for funding the BrainPOP computer subscription for my 7th grade students! With this multimedia technology we can explore every standard required for 7th grade in an engaging and interactive way.
BrainPOP can be used either as introduction of new material or to check for understanding/review... It is a wonderfully versatile tool, which increases the engagement and learning of my students whether they be GATE, regular education, or struggling learners. It truly offers something for everyone.
Thank you, once again, for your generosity. My students and I will think of our donors and thank you, every time we use the BrainPOP subscription!

Mrs. Fiddler – Middle School – California – Jun 14, 2010
Moving forward with their continued support to the school, members recently voted to award a $200 technology grant.
Laurie Adams, computer teacher at LCS, said the grant supports the BrainPOP program, an animated educational site for kids in science, social studies, English, math, arts, music, health, engineering and technology.
“The computer program is a valuable resource to integrate into the curriculum to teach and motivate students,” said Adams.
Assistant Principal Ryan Patrie said, “The grant will provide LCS students in grades one through five the ability to experience the inter-active software. We are extremely fortunate to have community partners like Topsham Grange support our school and our students by providing resources to continually improve our content areas.”
