Amidon-Bowen PTA

Friends of Southwest DC made a grant to the Amidon-Bowen Elementary School PTA in the Summer of 2017, for tablets (iPads) to be used in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade classes. These tablets are used to enhance early literacy and engage in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) applications.

See the article in March 2018 issue of The Southwester -- scroll down to page 3.

FOS board members were invited to visit the school on December 18, 2017, when the teachers and children who use the iPads were in class to thank FOS for our support. We were delighted with our visit and the thank-you cards from the children!
