Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
A fleet of 28 new Apple iMac computers and they are Elmbrook's.
This is the print shop (I think it is called) in Central's Applied Technology wing.
The students use these new iMacs to work on the yearbook and to learn about graphic arts.
The principal proudly showed us this room on the Central tour, and rightly so.
How did Elmbrook afford 28 new iMacs?
I believe it was a combination of the Elmbrook Foundation, a grant, and district funding. This shows that Elmbrook can come up with creative ways to improve the schools without resorting to a referendum.
Often our schools are presented as being so far behind the times. you would think our students are still using slates and chalk to do their lessons. But if you look at the 2nd photo, you can see there is a LCD projector in this room too (cords are hanging from it).
If memory serves me correctly, the Elmbrook Foundation also purchased some SMART boards for the schools in past years.
This was a fun project. The class photo shopped the Social Studies teachers for their own version of Washington crossing the Delaware.
They did a pretty good job!
