SPIN & WIN CASINO NIGHT
This year's Mother Patricia Waldron Award recipients are Kitty Ferry and Louise Fry for decades of service to Waldron Mercy Academy
A Waldron Mercy education is more than just memorizing facts--it is about critical thinking, problem solving and working in teams to tackle the local and global challenges of the future. This includes making sure our technology program is at the forefront of what is available. Technology in the classroom enriches the learning experience for each Waldron Mercy Academy student. From SMART Boards and tablets to laptops and 3D printers, cutting-edge equipment and technology make learning more interesting and more fun than ever before.
Because of past support of this event, Waldron Mercy boasts a 1:1 ratio of Chromebooks for students in grades three through eight and a 1:1 ratio of iPads in grades one and two. All of our wireless access points have been updated and all SMART Boards on the 1st and 2nd floors have been replaced with the latest model boards. This year we are asking for your support in with our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) program. Projects have been integrated into our curriculum across multiple subject areas beginning in 1st grade, many of which include creating prototypes using our 3D printer. These assets are essential tools our students utilize to engage in challenging programming, engineering and robotics projects.
In addition to upgrading equipment, proceeds from this event also fund teacher training and professional development. Technology is constantly changing and our equipment and our teachers’ skills evolve with it every step of the way.
Any questions contact Special Events Coordinator Ashley Robinson. On behalf of the students who will benefit from your generosity, we thank you for your support.
