High School Students Get "Graphing" Calculators

Students in the North Hills School District won't have to worry about whether they can afford the expensive graphing calculators they need for advance math and science classes, thanks to a local non-profit.


Imagine wanting to take an advanced high school math or science class, but not being able to sign up because your family can't afford the sophisticated calculator you need for the course. North Hills High School students in that predicament won't have to worry anymore, thanks to the recent donation of 18 new and used Texas Instruments graphing calculators by the newly-formed non-profit organization North Hills Cares..

The donated calculators will be kept in the high school library where students will be able to sign them out as needed. North Hills Cares purchased and donated 10 new calculators, and collected and refurbished another 8 used calculators. The used calculators were donated by students and families who no longer needed them.

The organization continues to accept donations of Texas Instruments TI-84 or newer calculators. If you'd like to donate, e-mail NHC at northhillscaresinc@gmail.com and the organization will coordinate pickup.

In the photo above, North Hills High school students William Perry, Jeremy Franciscus and Grayson Siatkowsky and Librarian Sandra Miller accept a donation of graphing calculators from North Hills Cares board member Kelly Korpusik.
