JFK 6th graders receive new laptops

Posted by wlpo on October 7, 2010

The new laptops have arrived and are in the hands of sixth graders at JFK School in Spring Valley.   The Apple computers were unveiled to the students Thursday, but not before Principal Gina Herrmann reminded them to be careful with them.

The laptops were purchased using money from Lou’s LaGrotto’s most recent Concert for a Cause. The performance by Lady Antebellum was sponsored by 96.5 the Wolf and raised over $61,000.

It’ll be another week before the students are allowed to bring them home.  The plan is that the students will be allowed to pay for the computers and be able to keep them through junior high and after they graduate.
