Dr. Irving Moskowitz and Mrs. Cherna Moskowitz understand that education is extremely critical in the development of children. Their foundation, the Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation, has wholeheartedly made a generous donation in the amount of $30,000 to Fedde Middle School in Hawaiian Gardens, California. Fedde Middle School will use the donation to purchase Apple iPads for their students.
Tablet computing and personal electronic devices such as iPads promise to have a dramatic impact on education. The convenience and user friendliness the iPads will be beneficial to students and will become a valuable asset to their education. Educators view the iPads as a new teaching tool with the potential to get students interested in learning in new and exciting ways. With these magazine-sized devices students can explore everything from mathematics to the physical matter that makes up the universe. The Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation anticipates that students will be captivated by these new gadgets and they will provide a creative learning experience on these portable devices. Motivating a student’s interest in education and technology is a win-win for everyone.
Dr. and Mrs. Moskowitz proudly sponsor education and feel that it is a vital for their long term success. There are a significant number of students who drop out of school during the middle school years. Dr. Irving Moskowitz hope that their donation can help to reduce the dropout rate. For far too long programs that affect America's most vulnerable population have seen little investment, as children fail to get the services and the support they need. This is why the Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation can no longer wait to invest in the education of our children.
Fedde Middle School is an international studies academy modeled after the world-renowned international baccalaureate program. This school consists of sixth and seventh graders. At Fedde Middle School students focus on programs such as English, literature, academic Spanish, humanities, mathematics, visual and performing arts and many others. This donation is not just the right thing to do, but rather it is the smartest investment we can make for our nation's future. With the Moskowitz’s charitable donation, the student’s future looks bright.
Dr. Irving Moskowitz himself believes that education is an extremely important part of every person’s development. He followed his own educational goals by attending the University of Wisconsin where he received the Phi Beta Sigma scholastic award for academic excellence. After Dr. Moskowitz received his Bachelor's Degree in Medical Science he began practicing medicine in Long Beach, California. Dr. Irving and Mrs. Cherna Moskowitz believe in investing in education, which in return will improve the quality of life. An investment in our youth's education is an investment in our future.
