As a result of their yearlong fundraising efforts, Babylon School District’s SEPTA aided in the district’s mission to further integrate technology in the classroom by presenting Eileen Ratto with an Apple iPad Mini during their early June meeting. As a special education teacher, Ms. Ratto will utilize the device to enhance the multi-sensory learning approach currently implemented within her classroom at Babylon Memorial Grade School.  
In addition to the technology presentation, SEPTA also honored the outstanding educational achievements of one graduating senior during the meeting. The student, who wishes to remain anonymous, was presented with a $500 scholarship based on an essay describing how, with the support of school-related resources, the student was able to achieve goals.

SEPTA thanks the community for supporting its fundraising efforts throughout the year and helping to ensure that these presentations were possible. The organization is planning future fundraisers to aid in the purchase of a SmartBoard for the high school self-contained classroom.
