Shayne and Jennifer Hobbs of Hobbs Construction, Inc and Tracy Tidwell, Executive Broker, ERA Henley Real Estate will present Wooster Elementary School with three new iPads at the School Spirit Assembly Friday Dec. 6 at 8:15 a.m. Visitors are welcome.
Along with this gift, Hobbs and Tidwell announce that for every house that closes in Bianca Meadows between now and May 30, 2014 one new iPad will be donated to Wooster School.
Principal Tally Mars said, "With this donation coming from one of our local community businesses, it supports and enhances the bond between the school and the community."
Elementary children of today are learning in a much different way from their parents as evidenced by the growth in technology in the school and home. Most young children today come to school well-acquainted with tablet computers like the iPad, and teachers can make good use of this tool to further education. "Tracy Tidwell, Jennifer and I are dedicated to not only improving the community through the subdivisions we build and market but also enhancing the education of the children in our community," said Hobbs.
Her daughter attends Wooster Elementary.
Hobbs Construction is developing the Bianca Meadows subdivision in Greenbrier and the Tracy Tidwell Team of ERA Henley Real Estate markets Bianca Meadows. This is a subdivision with approximately 1 to 2 acre lots for a country feel but still near city amenities in Greenbrier and Conway. The custom designed interiors feature solid granite countertops, hand-scraped wood floors and oil rubbed bronze or satin nickel fixtures. The homes have energy efficient features and are just minutes from Wooster Elementary. Prices for houses in Bianca Meadows start at $170,000.
Hobbs and Tidwell’s "technology in education" partnership is a natural fit since Tracy Tidwell also shows her support for those in the education field through her affiliation with Homes for Heroes, an organization that allows her to reward a percentage of her commission to community heroes such as teachers and school staff.
Mars said, "We plan to utilize the iPads with our student Garden Club and 4th and 5th grade Environmental Science Clubs. Students will be using iPads as they work on landscape design for our school pond and keep up with projections of growth and profit with the school garden and various school projects."
