Mission Central is working on a joint partnership with Goode Elementary and Communities in Schools Site Coordinator Mr. Cole, in order to provide computer technology for the fifth grade students of Ms. Moyer.
Goode Elementary is part of the York City School District and has grades K-8, with approximately 680 students. By working together, we expect to improve overall math and reading scores of this fifth grade class through the use of technology.
As you can see from the photos, the computers have all been delivered. There are approximately 30 desktop computer systems, along with several laptops ready to be hooked up at the school. The kids are very excited and have begun to utilize the technology. Computer Ministry, one of Mission Central’s in-house partners refurbished all of the computers and Mission Central funded the project.
Past and ongoing projects with Communities in Schools include a Thanksgiving Dinner provided by Mission Central’s York HUB, a Christmas Angel Tree for 60 of the neediest families in Goode Elementary and a joint project with Messiah College to provide every student, faculty and staff member a Holiday Gift in December 2016. Mission Central has also supplied resources for an after school Cake and Candy Club. The Club teaches mathematics and science, through baking.
Mission Central will be on-site at Goode Elementary in the coming weeks, along with York City School District Superintendent, Dr. Eric Holmes, to observe Ms. Moyer’s class, as this technology is implemented.
