STM Raises Over $10,000 for Educational Technology on Giving Tuesday

December 1, 2017: Supported by the school’s Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign, St. Thomas More High School will acquire additional Smart Boards for its classrooms. Alumni, parents, and other community members donated over $10,000 – with an average gift of $339 – for this technology during the school’s one-day, online fundraiser on November 28.

“Giving Tuesday gave parents, alumni, and volunteers the opportunity to make a direct investment in the education of St. Thomas More students,” president Mary McIntosh explained. “We are truly humbled by this outpouring of support, and I am excited to see what our talented teachers utilize this new technology.”

Compatible with educational software for all fields of study, Smart Boards are large, interactive computers that also operate as whiteboards and projectors for classroom instruction and experimentation. Smart Boards allow teachers to expand their lesson plans, and, in turn, keep their students engaged and excited about learning.

“These Smart Boards will provide our teachers with another outlet to express their creativity and encourage their students to take an active role in their education,” principal Nicholas Kelly said. “After investing in our Learning Commons over the summer, St. Thomas More is grateful for the donors whose support now allows us to expand the use of technology in the classroom as well.”

This investment in technology follows significant renovations completed at St. Thomas More last summer that transformed the school’s Community Room into a multi-purpose Learning Commons. Along with providing a modern, flexible space for school gatherings and interdisciplinary lessons, the Learning Commons includes a high-definition Creston projector and 17-foot screen for presentations; two conference rooms equipped with teleconferencing technology, flat screen TVs, large whiteboards; and two small project rooms.

    Congratulations to the Cavalier Powerlifting Team! On Saturday, seven Cavaliers competed in a powerlifting meet at Cudahy High School. Five of the seven athletes medaled, and two of those students are going to state!

    “Coach Litscher and I are proud of these student athletes for the hard work and dedication to training," said powerlifting coach and STM science teacher Mike Fricke. "Strength training has a unique way of instilling confidence and growth in young men and women, and in the end that is the most important outcome anyone would want of our students at St. Thomas More High School.”

    Stay tuned for more updates on our powerlifting team as some of them compete in Germantown in February and then at the state meet in Appleton on March 2 and 3.
