Did you know that Samsung recently donated 5 televisions to Juarez-Lincoln? Each of these 55″, 65″, and 70″ tv’s now hang in our classrooms and replace the old pull-down screens we used to use.  The size and quality of the screen is so much better for our kids to see!  We also bought AppleTV’s for each classroom so teachers can stream from their laptops right into the Samsung TV’s.  Thank you Samsung for improving our students’ educational experience while at school!
