Rollingstone Community School receives Ipads (12/26/2012)
It was a big event at 10 am on Monday, December 17 at Rollingstone Community School. The long-awaited ipads were delivered by members of the WAPS IT Department with Herky along for the celebration. Dr. Jack Kaehler, Rollingstone Principal welcomed the students and introduced special guests. Rollingstone Mayor, Geri Lehnertz, and WAPS Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Scott Hannon cut the ribbon that spanned a portion of the gym to make way for Herky and Cody Deneff and Robb Brown, IT Technicians, to walk the two carts filled with new ipads down the gauntlet of students and teachers lining the path in the gym. Students carried placards--”Hurray for our Ipads”, “Yippee!” and “Yay!”

Dr. Hannon spoke about the Rollingstone Community School faculty and students serving as pioneers for the rest of the district, as they put instructional applications to use across their math and reading curriculum. Mayor Lehnertz thanked the Rollingstone community, who, as always, comes out in support when a request for funds is made. $40,000 was raised to support the purchase of the ipads for Rolllingstone Community School. Faculty have been reviewing rules with students about handling their ipads, and have surveyed students as to what they think they will do their ipads. On Friday, December 14, students were engaged in an “egg carrying” adventure to prepare for the care and handling of their new ipads. Beginning on Tuesday, December 18, students will be orientated to their ipads and the learning will begin.

Special thanks to everyone who supported this initiative. There will be a spring open house on March 25 from 6-7 pm for all to attend and see the ipad learning underway at Rollingstone Community School.
