Help Provide GMC Teachers Interactive Classroom Boards

GMC Teachers have been working hard to connect with their students in the classroom and the students joining virtually.   The challenge has been being able to see their online students while also using their computers to teach. In order to help our teachers see their students, we are trying to provide each classroom with a  Promethium Interactive Board. Due to a strained technology budget, we need your help! We need to raise $6,000 to complete the purchase to be able to have one in every classroom. Click here for details and to donate.
