The time has come for another Computer Power Day. After experiencing five inclement weather days in the past two weeks, we do not have a lot of time to promote the Little Rock School District Computer for Kids program Computer Power Day. The Computer Power Day Plus Parent Academy for Student Success is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, 2015 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Henderson Middle School 401 John Barrow Road.
Our purpose has three major components:
- To make available at a reasonable cost computer Hardware and software.
- Through Comcast Internet Essentials provide a low cost internet access.
- Through the Parent Academy for student Success (LRSD Parent Involvement and Instructional Technology), we provide training, and at this Computer Power Day we are putting specific interest in Activating your Edline Account.
Generally, the weeks leading up to the Computer Power Day is when our schools promote and solicit the students and parents that need computer access to help in their educational process. They would:
- Insure the parent completes the Parent Agreement Form (Student ID #)
- Input the information into the Computer for Kids database
- Collect the money and give the parent a copy of the confirmation ticket/receipt
Your parent or student will bring the confirmation ticket/receipt to the Computer Power Day and we will present them with a refurbished computer.
I want to thank you in advance because I know what we are asking of you is not an easy task and secondly, it may not be the highest on your priority list, but we hope that you would put your student’s interest first and foremost and we know in the long term, it will be the best thing for education.

Mary Poppins, which received seven Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have spent many a nanny packing before taking matters into their own hands and taking out their own want ad. Mary Poppins touches down on their doorstep and, with the help of a little bit of discipline, a spoonful of sugar and a whole lot of magic, reacquaints the Banks family with the
important things in life: each other.
