Even though the Public School system has suffered tremendous budget cuts over the past few years, iPads are the new educational tool at a Hawaiian Gardens middle school. Irving Moskowitz donated $30,000 to fully equip classrooms with iPads that will enhance student’s learning experience at Pharis Fedde Middle School’s Global Scholars Honors Program. The iPads will be accessible to students participating in the Global Scholars Honors Program, which is a program designed to prepare students for higher education through academic enrichment, reflective college exploration, and community building projects.
As one of the school’s program community partners, Irving Moskowitz contributes towards the purchase of iPads that will be used by students enrolled in this academic program. His belief in helping those in need is the philosophy by which he felt compelled to make a contribution to an educational program that would benefit the students at Pharis Fedde Middle School. Irving Moskowitz realizes how important it is for students to receive the highest level of education and to be provided with the tools in order to achieve academic success. “The iPads will be another educational tool that will not only motivate students, but also challenge them to think outside the box with the many applications available at the touch of a finger tip,” said Irving Moskowitz. Students at Pharis Fedde Middle School are ecstatic about having iPads in their classroom. Most students have only experienced navigating an iPad at the Apple Store, but now the middle school will loan the school iPads to students of the Global Scholars Honors Program, which is a privilege that they will have to earn, according to school administrators.
It is gratifying for Irving Moskowitz to take part on such an innovative venture that will only enhance the learning experience for students.
