Raising Donations to Provide Document Cameras to All Classroom Teachers

At the last PTA meeting, members voted to provide document cameras to allow teachers to project anything on to the classroom screen, for all of Woodburn’s classroom teachers. Woodburn teachers asked for document cameras to improve classroom technology. We will be able to buy about half the cameras with existing PTA funds, and we need your support to provide the rest! We are so excited to give back to Woodburn teachers in this way! You may send payment to school (make checks to Woodburn PTA) or through the Paypal link on our site.
