Milk builds strong schools - 5% of milk sales goes to local schools

Jacksons Food Stores and the Dairy Farmers of Washington presented an iPad Learning Lab to Lake Forest Park Elementary School at a special school assembly Thursday, September 25th at 10:55 a.m.  This donation was made possible through the “Milk Builds Strong Schools” campaign. The campaign, which ran in Jacksons stores in Washington from March 18-May 26, set aside five percent of gallon milk sales to fund an iPad Learning Lab and iPads for the school. Lake Forest Park Elementary School was randomly selected in a drawing of public schools in the state.

The iPad Learning Lab streamlines the management of classroom sets of iPad devices. Each lab includes 10 iPad devices and a mobile cart that can store, charge, and sync up to 30 iPad devices. Jacksons and the Dairy Farmers of Washington are donating a total of 10 iPads.

“Our library has wanted iPads for a while now so students could explore different apps, learn about blogging, and make videos—so this is exciting for us,” said Aimee Miner, principal, Lake Forest Park Elementary. “We currently have laptops, Chrome books, document cameras, and interactive whiteboards in the classrooms; this Learning Lab will complement these technology learning tools.  Thank you, Jacksons and the Dairy Farmers of Washington, for this generous donation to our school.”
