Westerville Elementary Students Raising Money for Classroom iPads


UPDATED: Thursday March 14, 2013 1:23 PM

Students at one central Ohio elementary school are raising money to put iPads in the classroom.

The teachers and staff at Robert Frost Elementary in Westerville are raffling experiences.  

Students purchase tickets for a chance to win things like a pancake breakfast in the teacher's lounge or a picnic in the park with their favorite teacher.

The school's PTA came up with the idea as a way to raise money to purchase six iPads for each grade level.

“Kids need to know how to operate the technology that's out there,” Robert Frost Elementary Principal Sarah Berka said. “There are so many learning applications on there that can help them, and it's motivating to them, it's something they want to be able to do.”

The students are trying to raise $10,000 by next Friday.

The PTA will donate an additional $10,000.
