Northwestern Bank announced that in response to the recent passage of the Elk Rapids Schools technology bond, and in keeping with their commitment to supporting children and education, they have donated $300 worth of iTunes credits to Elk Rapids Schools.
“We’re very happy to receive this support from Northwestern,” said Stephen Prissel, superintendent of Elk Rapids Schools. “Their generosity will truly benefit our students and teachers.”
The technology bond allowed for the purchase of iPads for teachers and students, but state law does not allow the school to purchase application software with bond money for the devices. With this gift, Elk Rapids teachers will be able to purchase important teaching and educational applications for the newly acquired iPads.
