Over the break, our IT team installed dozens of Promethean Boards in CDE classrooms. These interactive whiteboards are one of the newest innovations in instructional technology and they easily integrate with the Google Chromebooks and apps already used by faculty and students, making it easier for teachers to display and interact with content. The District used federal funds from the American Rescue Plan to purchase more than 80 Promethean Boards, which will be installed in almost every classroom in the district by September.

Members of the CDHS Interact Club donated $500 to help Cairo Rotary purchase a “shelter box” for refugees from Ukraine. The shelter box will provide a tent-like shelter for 15-20 individuals and it includes essential supplies such as a water filtration system and blankets. Students Natalie McGuire and Jessica Baeckmann sold baked goods to help raise funds for this humanitarian effort. Although the CDHS Interact Club usually focuses its community service efforts on local needs, McGuire shared that it also provides opportunities to offer assistance in other places where people need help.
