GATEWAY TO TECHNOLOGY

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year!

I’m reaching out to you for your support in supplying our Gateway to Technology classes with Computer Mice. Every month the school and myself provide so many computer mice but by the end of the month, most go mysteriously missing. So, I am extending an invite to my students’ parents to donate Computer Mice of any kind during January and February. This is much appreciated.

Cheers,

Mr. Pohl
