Helping Hands – Laptop Surprise for Rose Valley Elementary School Students

As children begin to make it back to school after a challenging year, we surprised Prince George’s County families with something special to help kick off their school year. With the help of Rose Valley Elementary School Principal Dr. Sharon Porter, Kidd O’Shea revealed the surprise live last Wednesday on 7 News. Ten students from Rose Valley Elementary received brand new laptops.

“Our theme is ‘Strive For 5.’ With that, we strive for five-star academics, five-star performance, five-star attendance, behavior, and character,” explained Rose Valley Elementary School Principal Dr. Sharon Porter. “So these students were part of that ‘Strive for 5’ third quarter last year. We’re really excited to have them for this big surprise.”

Joel Bassam, joined to share a special message, ‘We wanted to support Prince George’s County schools once again this year by donating 10 laptops to your students to use as they see fit. Continue doing the amazing work, and you’re going to have an amazing school year once again.”
