    What a bunch of adolescents. Create an unfair advantage over 30 measly iPads? Good Lord is this how low our educational system has fallen? Denton Avenue should be the proud recipient of this wonderful gift. It's too bad the Center St. and Searington schools weren't as lucky- this time. Why does everything always have to be even? Isn't that a life lesson kids should learn?. Sometimes others get things you don't. "You get what you get and you don't get upset." The PTA sounds like a bunch of entitled, jealous, hypocritcal people.
    Denton Avenue can decide if they want to share some of their gift with the other schools, but I wouldn't.
