Community Rallies to Support Students at Emlen Elementary

Over 500 students at Emlen Elementary School were greeted with a special “back to school” gift courtesy of Mt. Airy Schools Coalition.  On Friday afternoon, the Coalition, along with local government officials, school representatives and community supporters, debuted a brand new computer lab featuring 33 new iMacs to help Emlen’s students engage in technology-infused lessons and become better prepared for the future. Prior to the opening, there were not enough computers in the lab for students to use and existing computers were extremely outdated. In an effort led by the Mt.
