MCDONALD'S GRANT TO HELP NEWPORT CITY PURCHASE CHROMEBOOKS -- Newport City Elementary School recently was awarded a $7000 grant from the Ronald McDonald House Charities to purchase 21 Chromebooks for its "Equal Access to Technology Project." Fifth-grade teacher Cathy Lowell and technology coordinator Paul Monette collaborated on the grant this past December and were notified in January of its award. With tight school budgets and the need to upgrade technology to meet today's standards, any additional funds through grants greatly helps children to have equal access. Above. James Bartley, at left, from the local McDonald's presents the check to Lowell and Monette as Lowell's fifth-grade class and Principal Robert Midi look on.

“People should come to this show if they want to know what teenagers are thinking, feeling, needing, and wanting. So if you are a parent, come to the show. If you are an educator, come to the show. If you are a grandparent, come to the show. If you are anyone, come to the show.”
