The Lake Bluff Park District had their grand opening for their newly installed SMART boards and projectors. This is a project the District had been fundraising for a while but were years away from being able to purchase the equipment.
This is where the Kiwanis Foundation of Lake Bluff & Lake Forest stepped in… they donated the necessary $10,000 to purchase the Smart boards and projectors for all four preschool classrooms. The funds raised by the District parents will be used to purchase laptop computers to be used in conjunction with the SMART boards. The teachers and staff are extremely thankful of the donation from Kiwanis, and can hardly wait to incorporate them into their classroom actvity.
David Lee, President Kiwanis Foundation, said “this project fit perfectly with our objectives of “Serving the Children” and that we are excited to see the children learning with technology.” Lee mentioned that the Foundation hopes to make significant donations yearly to area organizations that will positively impact our children.
