The Dillard Dance Academy and the Drumline entertained the entire crowd with their exceptional talents. 11 volunteers dressed up as characters from the famous Dr. Seuss story Books. Every family who attended went to their child’s classroom to hear about what is being taught to their children and 1000 books were given out to these participating families. Thank you to all of our donors and volunteers for helping to make this magical night!

On October 27th Victoria Ranger went back to school… as a volunteer at Dillard Elementary School. Ranger participated in the worldwide Jumpstart Read For The Record event by reading The Bear Ate Your Sandwich to eager kindergarteners. Broward Schools had readers volunteer to take part in the biggest read-aloud event in the world.
The Dillard Kindergarteners loved the story telling time. Especially after Mrs. Ranger gave in to read the story a second time around as they enjoyed eating strawberries and blueberries just like the bear ate before going to sleep and embarking on his journey before he found “the sandwich.”
We are asking our community friends to help us make a difference in a student’s life. Join our Volunteer Program.
Helping Hands Program: Volunteers pitch in and give helping hands by either donating their time at an event or by simply going into a classroom and reading to the young students. Spending less than one hour of your time could make a lifelong impression on a child.
Mentors Program: The purpose of having mentors is to provide disadvantaged children with caring volunteer adult role models to befriend them and spend quality time with them on a regular basis. RGW mentors incorporate tutoring and academic enrichment activities that support student achievement in the classroom and help students meet proficiencies required by Dillard Elementary School.
Guest Speaker Hero Program: Guest speakers are welcomed into the after-school clubs. Ranger Good Works recruits talented, goal oriented and successful individuals to go to the school to visit with a plan to excite or inspire the students. Areas of interest may range from professional to home economics. Examples of speakers have ranged from women computer technologists to race car drivers.

Ranger Good Works had a fan-tas-tech team show up to support us for the Computer Science Education Week and CODE.ORG Hour of Code initiative held at Dillard Elementary. 36 Volunteers walked out of the session proudly wearing a #BrowardCodes – I coded did you? sticker.
Without a doubt every helping hand left their assigned classrooms with a smile on their face knowing they made a big impact on our community’s children of Fort Lauderdale. Learning to code and be more informed about Computer Science is critical to our youth. In today’s world everything runs on software. The next generation will be faced with their world being focused even more on-line and digital than today. What we taught at Dillard Elementary was not only coding. Some lessons included computational thinking. (Mathematics, logic and algorithms) The instructors focused the children on problem solving in small thought out pieces to eventually solve the bigger problem.) The interaction with the volunteers during this initiative gave the students encouragement that they could do anything if they put their minds to it. Coding and Computational thinking are used in many different careers today. We are proud to have been able to provide this opportunity to our chosen elementary school in the sixth largest school district in the United States. (Broward County Public Schools – Ft. Lauderdale, Florida)
Thanks to a great Team: Ranger Technical Resources, DHL, Broward College, Spelling City, Nova Southeastern University, Broward County Clerk of Courts, Sitters in a Second, Giant Titan, Merrill Lynch, C&I Studios and several other amazing companies.

We are preparing for Computer Science Education Week and plan to create a fan-tas-tech event for 2015!
A community partner initiative with Ranger Technical Resources, Citrix Systems, Nova SouthEastern University, Broward College, Merrill Lynch and others.
Once again, Ranger Technical Resources & Ranger Good Works are recruiting friends and community partners to help educate over 800 students from Dillard Elementary School about the importance of Computer Science in an international coding initiative founded by Code.org. We love it when our kids receive the three T’s….time, talent and treasure. Please join our Hour of Code volunteer team this year. The kids love to see familiar faces. If you can’t join us, tell a friend who you think can. Our communities continued help in making this a great event is much needed and appreciated.
The Hour of Code will take place at Dillard Elementary on Thursday, December 10, 2015.
Responsibilities include: Sit in two conference calls prior to the Hour of Code at Dillard Elementary.
Show up onsite one hour prior to the Hour of Code initiative
Participate in classrooms with instruction or help in the classrooms
Work with our coordinators and the teachers from Dillard Elementary to create a successful event.
YOU do not need to be a programmer to volunteer. You only need to be able to read and speak to the children.
Programmers who volunteer will be assigned to the classrooms where the students are more advanced with coding.
Hour of Code
Volunteers arrive and meet
Go to designated locations – Ready Hour of Code
9:00AM – 10:00AM
Start Hour of Code in the classrooms
This experience will continue to fill the students treasure chest full of great life experiences. Three years ago we first partnered with Code.org for the Official Hour of Code, a Global Computer Science Education Week initiative to encourage youth to learn basic coding. Over 49 million students around the world participated. As a technology solutions company Ranger Technical Resources contributed by sending mentors to local schools and sponsored an Hour of Code at our corporate office for 40 students.
In 2014 we expanded. Eight hundred students from Dillard Elementary participated in a Computer Science related activity. As you can see the number of students we are encouraging has increased due to our community’s involvement.
In 2015 we will have close to 1000 students enrolled at Dillard Elementary School. We need all of the helping hands we can to keep up the great momentum. Please join our volunteer team for the Hour of Code on Thursday, December 10th. Click here to sign up. Thank you for your continued support!
