Thank you for your support on Give to the Max Day

This year WASHBURN is asking for help with a specific need: Technology for Teens.  We hope to buy more Chromebooks and Graphing Calculators for our students. Our goal is to earn $43,000! That would allow us $33,000 for 3 mobile computer labs & $10,000 for 100 graphing calculators needed for rigorous math and science classes. Please consider adding Washburn High School as one of your recipients on Give to the Max Day 2015!
