Go Fund Me Campaign for Technology

Our students at Sunrise Elementary are born “digital natives.”  They manipulate and utilize technology in their homes, but our school’s budget is not deep enough to bring learning to life through software and hardware purchases.  We have launched this Go Fund Me campaign to help bring teaching and learning into the 21st Century at Sunrise Elementary.  Please consider joining our campaign by making a donation towards this project and sharing this campaign with your friends (

Thank You!
