School Officials heard from teachers who have been using ipads in the classroom as part of a pilot program.
When the Easton School Committee saw what ipads could do for Easton students last week, they were impressed. Or, as school committee member Caroline O'Neill put it, she was "blown away." "The way that you have each found your own path in using these wonderful tools with the kids really blows me away," she said. "Everyone was really different but equally creative and equally imaginative. It was just wonderful." Teachers from Easton's Technology Advisory Group, or "TAG", presented to the school committee last Thursday what they have done in the first half of the year as part of the ipad pilot program. Presenters included teachers from the high school, middle school and elementary school levels, as well as specialists and therapists from …

Easton's "One Story, One School," funded by FEEE, was discussed last week.
Since 1989, the Foundation for Excellence in Education in Easton has always been at the forefront of technology, staying ahead of the curve and raising money to keep equipment up-to-date in a constantly changing tech world. Interactive white boards have been added to classrooms, wireless access has been granted to many areas in the school district, and laptop libraries have been provided. But, FEEE is about much more than technology. "The foundation is primarily concerned with purchasing technology throughout the school district," FEEE President Ed Sharkansky said. "However, we do allow for a smaller allotment of money for what we call grant applications which are intended for more creative programs within the classroom that will enhance …

The foundation, which has raised over $1 million since 1989, is looking to move on to the "next level."
It is tradition for 99 Restaurants to give back to the community of which they are a part at celebrations and anniversaries. The task of deciding who or what to give back to is up to that particular restaurant. For the 99 Restaurant on Belmont Street, 20 years in Easton was worth celebrating Wednesday night. And, for General Manager Mark Fontneau, there was not a more worthy organization to donate to than the Foundation for Excellence in Education in Easton. "I didn’t really want to narrow it down to one school and have other schools in Easton be upset," Fotneau said. "So, I was told about this organization that would help out all of the schools and I was sold." In all, the 99 donated 10 percent of its profits from what was a huge turnout …
