虽然每年这个时候举行的许多传统庆祝活动在本赛季看起来可能会大不相同,但峡谷教育基金会正在计划一项将所有活动都打勾的活动:这很有趣,这是有道理的,整个社区都可以参加。

峡谷教育基金会的首届虚拟娱乐活动于11月22日至28日开始,为参与者提供了完成5K安全的机会,并通过筹款活动为有需要的学生提供互联网连接和计算设备,从而使社区成员受益。 

峡谷教育基金会发展官Denise Haycock说:“我们知道有些人愿意在学区内提供帮助,因此这是员工和我们自己的学生家庭能够帮助其他学生家庭的一种方式。” 

那些希望参加趣味运动的人可以参观 这个连结 注册。注册时间为$20,参与者将在活动开始之前,活动期间和活动结束后获得#TrotForTech跑步者的围嘴和口罩。注册后,参赛者可以在活动一周内的任何位置和任何时间完成5K(3.1英里)的比赛。只要他们始终保持建议的六英尺外,他们就可以跑步,与家人一起散步,慢跑,甚至在跑步机上走蟹路。

通过将您的5k涂饰照片发送给电子邮件来分享您的#TrotForTech成功 communications@canyonsdistrict.org,我们将在抽奖中输入您的奖金。

All proceeds from the event will go toward providing technology equipment and Internet access for students in need, and toward the purchase of classroom streaming devices for teachers. Canyons is working with Internet providers to cover the cost of Internet service for economically disadvantaged students in the District, which is about $12 a month per family. According to a survey of Canyons’ students, 2,549 self-reported that they do not have adequate Internet access. Most cite affordability as the reason.

Canyons also plans to purchase about 1,600 classroom streaming devices to enhance the capability of teachers to record their daily instruction for students who may not be able to attend class in person. The devices are $200 per classroom, and funds from the fun run would go toward that effort. 

学习不再局限于教室的四面墙,Canyons致力于为现在和将来的所有学生提供与众不同,融合和个性化的学习机会。 Haycock说:“这使我们能够增强和扩展我们已经为学生提供的技术和教学支持,从而使所有学生都能获得所需的东西。” “如果您在线上,或者您必须回家一点,我们希望确保您不会错过学习机会。”
