Emlen Computer Lab Initiative

Update: We are thrilled to announce that we have met our fundraising goal! Emlen’s new computer lab will be installed before the start of the 2014-2015 school year. Thank you to all of the donors who helped make this happen! (July 2014)

Emlen Elementary School and the Mt. Airy Schools Coalition (a collaboration of Mt. Airy USA, East Mt. Airy Neighbors, and West Mt. Airy Neighbors) are working together to raise $48,807 to purchase new computers for Emlen’s technology lab. This collaborative effort will allow Emlen’s students to participate in technology-infused lessons and use research-based instructional software programs that are not compatible with the current, outdated equipment.
