Dear parent/guardian, The Andersen library will be offering digital/audio books beginning in January. Students will be able to read a variety of titles on their personal devices, with a free app called Brytewave K-12. To avoid data charges, students should download the book (recommended), or connect to the school Wifi if they want to read it online. Students will be shown how to use the app with their class during check out time in January. Students may bring their devices to the library to access the app, if they have your permission. This is not a requirement for any class. It is just another option for students. They are still responsible for their device throughout the day. If you have any questions, please contact the Teacher Librarian, Mrs. Dergan at (402)715-8440 or email@example.com

Thank you to the MPS Foundation: MPS FOUNDATION PUTS TECHNOLOGY IN THE HANDS OF MILLARD STUDENTS WITH $1.3 MILLION DONATION FOR IPADS Additional Funds Will Provide Smart Boards November 20, 2014: The Millard Public Schools Foundation Board voted unanimously this evening to donate $1.3 million to Millard Public Schools for the purchase of 2,500 iPads. This donation will put five iPads in all 482 elementary classrooms throughout the district. The technology will be 32G iPad Air. Each will come with a case, software and a stand. The donation will include 90 reserve units for repair and replacement purposes. MPS Foundation Director Angelo Passarelli noted the unanimous approval, stating “The sole purpose of the Foundation is to support Millard Public Schools, and the Board members feel strongly that the dollars they give must touch students in the most meaningful way possible. Technology is at the forefront of a world-class education. Millard’s mission is to guarantee students a world-class education and this is the best way we can assist in making that a reality.” In addition to the iPads, the funding will provide 17 interactive smart boards for elementary libraries. This furthers the district’s aim to expand learning opportunities through increased use of digital technology. The district will make these purchases immediately and support the donation by providing all the staff development expenses to make sure these resources are used in the most productive ways throughout Millard Elementary Schools. Millard Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Jim Sutfin commented, “This is an amazing donation that focuses right on what we need most. It is directly tied to our strategic plan which calls for expanding use of and access to interactive tools and technology to support and improve learning and innovation. In short, it puts technology where it needs to be, in the hands of students. The MPS Foundation has always done so much to support our schools, but this truly takes it to the next level.” The MPS Foundation stands behind every student with an average of $63 spent per student. Managing nearly a hundred thousand dollars in scholarships for students entering college, the Foundation also supports the district through after school study centers and classroom grants. For the ninth consecutive year, the Foundation will invest more than $1 million dollars in the district.
