Students, staff and parents say “Thank you, Staples!” for superpowering their school

Written by: Jenny Frappa, Principal of St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic Elementary School

Staples generous $25,000 donation allowed us to purchase new technology. We gratefully appreciate and thank Mr. Hagerman from Hamilton’s Staples Centre Mall for assisting us with getting this new technology to our school.

Students and school clubs are using the computers and devices to aid their learning, research and projects. Our school will continue to use them in developing digital programs to aid the Eco Club and HATeam.

This boost in digital equipment will also enhance learning possibilities, as we are starting to see the benefits already. The program is a wonderful way to support the children and improve student learning in our community. The whole school wins when everyone uses the technology!

Thank you, STAPLES!
