Webcetera has donated $2,500 to the American Red Cross to help with disaster relief in Oklahoma due to the tornadoes that hit yesterday. We hope for their speedy recovery and our hearts go out to the families who lost loved ones from the storm.
Reminder: This is a good time to review bad weather safety strategies in each of your own offices.
Our hearts go out to all the people affected by superstorm Sandy, which hit the East Coast on Monday evening, October 29th. In support of the disaster relief efforts, Webcetera made a $5,000 contribution to the American Red Cross.
The donations they receive “make it possible for the American Red Cross to reach out with the capability and compassion that embraces those affected by disaster in their hour of need.”
Webcetera contacted LISD in November 2011 with the idea of creating and sponsoring an after school Mathematics Program for underprivileged students. The idea was met with much enthusiasm, and the program was launched in the Spring of 2012. Since then, LISD representatives are praising this program as one of the most effective after school programs they have ever had, with some schools having nearly 100% improvement in test scores since the program’s inception.
Webcetera is working with LISD to continue the program for the current school year and to expand it to ten additional underprivileged schools; reaching a total of almost 600 students.
An innovative idea being implementing this year is arming a group of students with math games loaded iTouches. Use of the iTouches will be tightly monitored and mostly results/goals driven.
We are extremely pleased with the results to date. Our wish is to create a Bill Gates or Steve Jobs from this group of students, making this program well worth the investment!
