On Friday May 30, 2014, 70 of our Dillard students saw 50 pieces from the world famous Guy Harvey Exhibit at Nova Southeastern University. This activity was facilitated by a thoughtful Ranger Good Works Member who continuously keeps our children of Dillard in mind. Thank you Lois Marino! This field trip will be the start of an incredible Art Adventure yet to come.
On May 7th, 2014, Ranger Good Works brought the “City of Ft. Lauderdale” to the students of Dillard Elementary. Students were able to see firsthand what it feels like to take a walk through a safe and inviting city which had been created just for them. Students learned about various professions and many of our local industries during their walk. They engaged with professionals and had the chance to ask questions in a comfortable environment. Ranger Good Works is building a Career City for the future of the students of Dillard Elementary.

We started a technology club called the Ranger Super Coders. The club was designed for students of all ages to provide a great first experience in computer science and coding. Our volunteers donate their time and talent monthly for one hour. Our goal is to inspire the youth to build self-confidence, be innovative, and dream about their future. Please be sure to check out the Super Coder’s progress by visiting www.rangercoders.com. Thanks to Ranger Technical Resources, the Volunteers and Ranger Good Works for providing the 3T’s!

You can make a BIG difference and educate others by spreading the word about the importance of coding in computer science and by also sharing our video on any of your social media sites. Don’t forget to tag #rangertechnical and #rangergoodworks!
Literacy Night 2013
Ranger Good Works helped facilitate over 800 book donations which supported numerous families with literacy concerns. This program provided plenty of books for the children and their parents use and build an in home library. As a result, FCAT reading scores are up by 23% in the third grade. We also heard that all of the scores are increasing tremendously! We continued this program with a surprise book donation from Pine Crest School which augmented hundreds more of slightly used books to fill a section of Dillard’s school library.
