Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School students now have additional technology at their disposal following the donation of three Chromebooks by the Amityville Rotary Club.

Rotary Club members presented the donation to district officials on June 7 in the Park Avenue library. The three Acer touchscreen Chromebooks are in addition to devices already available in the school. Sixth-grade students demonstrated how they use Chromebooks to learn computer programming by participating in coding activities through KidOYO.

“We know that these Chromebooks will be put to good use as it prepares us to get ready for the modern technology world,” said sixth-grader Donovan Graham, a student member of the district Technology Committee. 

Amityville Rotary Club Foundation Chairwoman Virginia Belling explained to students about the purpose of the organization and its local and global service projects. She encouraged students to join the Interact Club, a Rotary-sponsored community service club for youth, when they get to high school. 

“We thank the Amityville Rotary Club for their generous donation and their continued support of our students and our community,” said Superintendent Dr. Mary T. Kelly. “This helps further our mission of providing students with access to a wide variety of engaging technological tools and resources.”
