Success Story: E-Readers for Portsmouth High School

In December 2011, members of the Board presented 26 e-readers or “Nooks” to the English Department of Portsmouth High School for a classroom of 25 students and 1 teacher. Many classic literature titles as well as textbooks can be retrieved. Updating and technical support will be provided by Barnes and Noble.
In addition to the e-readers, the Foundation awarded $3500 to the High School to upgrade the sound system in the auditorium, which is used by all grades in the school district.

In the 2012-2013 granting cycle, a grant was awarded to replace the old “risers”in the auditorium for concerts and performances by all grades as well.
