Devices for all at New Hope-Solebury High School

by Nick Damarodis, Class of 2015, New Hope-Solebury High School

Technology in the classroom is now a guarantee thanks to the implementation of New Hope-Solebury High School’s One-to-One Student Device Initiative. After several years of preparation and development, the plan finally made its way into the school. As of this year, every student now has an HP Pro x2 410 tablet that they can use in class during the school day. For many students, this is a great opportunity to combine their technological skills and need for education. Teachers are excited about the changes too with many using software and websites to work more with the devices that all students will now have.

submitted by Emily Schmidt, junior, Council Rock High School North

From Doctor Who Club to Spanish Club, North seemed to have it all, but it was lacking in one area: a place for yarn-lovers. Those who love to create almost anything using simply a ball of yarn and a hook or a set of needles had nowhere to turn. Determined to bring these students together, sophomore Emily Schmidt founded FCCLA’s newest addition, Sew Hooked on Helping, in the 2013-2014 school year.
