KATC Tools for Schools is back on the road visiting David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy.

The team delivered some headphones to the school to help restock the computer lab. Alison Canter at David Thibodaux says they reached out to Tools for Schools hoping the team could help provide them with a better learning environment.

"So what we have designed is a program where they create their own individual plans based on the data that we share with them and so they need to have some quiet spaces so we were running low on headphones. So we decided to reach out to Tools for Schools to help us fill our lab back up so that they can have a better learning environment," Canter said.

The headphones will help provide a little more quiet and for students, a better focus on learning.

"The headphones help us by learning more and we learn more from the computer so that we can make A's and stuff," Jordyn Kelly a 6th Grade Student said.

Students say the lab is beneficial because it helps them get back on track if they need to catch up on some subjects

"This class is to help the students that are struggling in certain subjects to help them catch up in those subjects and get better in other subjects that they may or may not need to," Gavin Addison a 7th Grade Student said.

Canter says that the delivery from the Tools for Schools team helps students see that the community cares about their education.

"Well, anytime the community can be a part of our learning then it's going to be more successful overall for our students. They are allowed to see that there are people outside of this building that cares about them and wants to support their learning progress and anytime that we can do that for our students then it helps our whole community," Canter said.
