CONGRATULATIONS to the teachers, school administration and the students in winning this grant! Our school was nominated by Ms. Plant:

“Special education teacher Jennifer Plant nominated P.S. 193 Gil Hodges, sharing that “the state tests in 2014 are currently slated to be given on computers, unfortunately we do not have enough access to computers for students to feel comfortable with this drastic change.  Our students would greatly benefit from a technology makeover/upgrade to help students become they best they can be.”  — from the news release at Jimmie Johnson Foundation
