We are not surprised to see the students of Texas complete more than two million math problems to support their friends and neighbors in West.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Think Through Math (TTM), a Web-based math solution that personalizes instruction for students in grades 3 through Algebra I, announces that students have donated $11,367 to the American Red Cross West, Texas Relief Fund.
Access to Think Through Math is provided via Texas SUCCESS, Texas Students Using Curriculum Content to Ensure Sustained Success. Texas SUCCESS provides state-funded access to interactive math and reading programs for Texas public school students in grades 3-8.
Michael L. Williams, the Commissioner of Education in Texas, will be attending a special event at West Elementary Campus on Monday, May 20, at 10:30 am to help present the check to a representative from the American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross West, Texas Fund was established on Thursday, April 18, to support the citizens of West, Texas, after an explosion crippled the town. Almost immediately, students of THINK Through Math pledged their support by donating their THINK points to the charity.
As part of its unique motivational system, Think Through Math provides students with the ability to make charitable donations to select charities by using their hard-earned THINK points. Think Through Math donates one dollar for every 5,000 points to various charities throughout the year. In a three-week period, students donated $6,367 to the American Red Cross West, Texas Relief Fund. Think Through Math matched student donations with an additional $5,000.
"Texans have an incredible sense of pride and thoughtfulness,” stated Louis Piconi, founder of Think Through Math. “We are not surprised to see the students of Texas complete more than two million math problems to support their friends and neighbors in West."
Special acknowledgment goes out to the top contributors to the West fund. They include: Harvey Elementary, Kinsgsville ISD for a donation of $63; South Houston High School, Pasadena ISD for a donation of $62; Ep Rayzor Elementary, Denton ISD for a donation of $41; Mark Twain Leadership Vanguard, Dallas ISD for a donation of $29; Travis Middle School, Calhoun County ISD for a donation of $25; and Shaw Elementary, Mesquite ISD for a donation of $25.
