Thank you, Chevron!

The Lawndale Elementary School District would like to thank the Chevron Corporation for their generosity.  The Grand Opening of the Chevron 21st Century Media Center at Will Rogers Middle School on October 8, 2015 was made possible through a generous donation by Chevron.  The new Media Center boasts a wide array of new technology, including HP Chromebook Carts, 50” LED Television Monitors by LG, Frontline AV Controllers, a Dell Touchscreen Kiosk Library Catalog, collaborative “nesting” tables, and modern “comfort” chairs. 

This new and modern space will be used by the students of Lawndale to conduct research, create content, collaborate, share, and inquire critically about a wide range of subjects. The technology in this room will ensure that teachers can engage our 21st century learners and help them to develop a deeper appreciation for the knowledge they will gain.  

Thank you to our wonderful staff and Board of Education for all the work they did in making this possible for our students.
