15:19 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Carolyn. :)

15:49 - Carolyn Stanley
Hi, just checking in for a few minutes.

16:11 - Peggy George
that is a great point about asking universities for "old" equipment. I was able to purchase tons of hardware, software computers from our university library for just a token payment.

Hi Carolyn! Great to see you!

16:24 - jake duncan
Hi, Wes! It's great to see you!

18:54 - Peggy George
so true!!! teachers spend so much of their own money on things for their students!

19:01 - dotty
Many of the parents in my area work for tech companies such as Apple, Google, Adobe, etc. and they have opportunities to volunteer in the classroom.

22:15 - dotty
Talk to your parents to determine if their employer matches donations.

22:24 - jake duncan
That's awesome! Thanks, Peggy!
