MANCHESTER, NH – Thanks to a generous gift from Dunkin’ Donuts, Weston Elementary will be able to boost its technology resources. The owners of a local Dunkin’ Donuts presented Weston students and staff with a check for $36,000, which will equip all classrooms with virtual interactive white boards and data projectors.  Another portion of the new funds will buy additional iPads, Chromebooks and programming to set up blended learning labs in each classroom.

This is the fourth school year that the Scrivanos family, owners of the Dunkin’ Donuts on Hanover Street, has stepped forward with a generous contribution to Weston. Last June, the school received $15,000 to purchase 25 classroom media centers, which include a television monitor, Chromebook and Chromecast streaming device. For 2012-13, $10,000 paid for personal books for students and 16 new computers for the school. In 2011, $25,000 from the Scrivanoses covered the cost of books and 35 iPads with apps.

“We are grateful for the support from Dunkin’ Donuts and the Scrivanos family,” said Liz MacDonald, principal of Weston Elementary School. “They’ve given our students many learning opportunities they might not have gotten otherwise.”

George Scrivanos and other representatives of his Dunkin’ Donuts store made the check presentation to MacDonald and the Weston community at the start of the school’s annual talent show on March 19.
