Give to the Max 2019 is here! This is a wonderful Minnesota tradition where a day of giving unites communities. Please consider Washburn High School on Give to the Max day on November 14th, 2019. Help us meet our goal of raising $25,000 for "EQUITY FOR ALL THROUGH TECHNOLOGY" as we seek to provide TECH FOR STUDENTS, TECH FOR TEACHERS, and TECH FOR NEW CLASSES. Check out Washburn's GiveMn info online! 


OUR 2019 GOALS

1. TECH FOR TEACHERS: Our teachers want to provide digital materials for their students to enhance learning experiences. We value academic integrity and can use powerful tools such as Turnitin.com to help students improve their writing skills. There are many online magazines that can support student learning as well. School-wide subscriptions such as these cost thousands of dollars per year.

2. TECH FOR STUDENTS: We  would like to support learning at home for our students who have limited resources outside of school. Students have the opportunity to check out needed tools such as graphing calculators and Chromebooks from our Media Center. With your support we can increase the number of students accessing these resources. 

3. TECH FOR CLASSES: Learning is always changing so adding new tech for our classes - and even new courses - is important. One exciting new class that we will be offering is Drone Piloting. We're excited to be planning for this new elective that will be of high interest but requires an investment in new equipment and supplies. Our digital media classes need cameras and other equipment as well.
