There are "66" Dell Chromebook Laptops (very similar to what you use at school) on their way Seniors! We originally had "80" applicants, these "66" responded to a letter that went out to all "80" in February, that they "would" be able to provide proof of enrollment when they pick up their laptop this summer...thus, we ordered "66" based on that info provided by the applicants.
I'm not setting a firm date just yet, but will soon - it should be around June 20th or so. (It's going to take a week to 10 days for them to arrive). I will set up shop at WHS in the Commons and the eligible seniors can come by and pick theirs up.
They can present their copy of "proof of enrollment" (which will be kept on file) and it should show the institution's name, the student's name, FALL 2019 Semester, and their class schedule. This form can easily be obtained from the institution you are enrolled at for this Fall.
Watch for a firm date and time announcement next week - we are almost there!! GO BIG RED!!
P.S. If you can't make the date we set up, no problem - do communicate with me at that time though, so we'll know - we can then make other arrangements.
We'll be handing out the LAPTOPS in the not-too-distant future! Those that had expressed interest through the application process were mailed letters in February, explaining this year's procedure. "Proof of Enrollment" is required - the eligible student can present that when they pick up the laptop which will be sometime in June. We are allowing extra time before distribution, (compared to the past), as most scholarship programs do, to acquire the aforementioned documentation. Of the 80 letters sent out in February, have received confirmation from 66 that they plan on presenting "Proof of Enrollment" at the time of distribution (again, sometime in June)...THANKS and CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2019!
Thank you sincerely to the many folks that contribute towards this cause! The students that participate (and their parents) appreciate it. Sending kids off to college or vocational programs can be very expensive. Providing the laptops helps a little with the overall expense and it's a pleasure for all of us to be able to do that. GO BIG RED!
