Uno, Dos, Tres, CATORCE!! Continuing with our effort to close our school's Digital Divide, the Asian Penguins gave away 14 laptops to middle school students. A new one-day record!

The Penguins had 23 students on their referral list, including these 14. These 14 students were in middle school and had requested laptops, so we figured they were old enough to get them home safely on the bus. We made the strategic decision to take care of them all at once. The Penguins had been going to Mr. Keroff's office for the last three weeks working to get these computers and others like them ready for students.

We brought the students to a brief meeting this afternoon to go over the software we included for them, as well as to explain to them how the Penguins Provide program works (yes, kids, you get to keep the computers!). Here are a few photos:
