Metroplex Cadillac Dealers Create Technology Lab at C.C. Moss ES

On Thursday, October 3, students at Fort Worth ISD’s Christene C. Moss Elementary School will celebrate a brand-new Technology Lab created in just one day through the support of local volunteers. Metroplex Cadillac Dealers employees will transform a space within the school at C.C. Moss into a tech lab complete with new paint and décor, an interactive white board, 30 Chromebooks, and a 3D printer. Metroplex Cadillac Dealers join nonprofit partner Heart of America Foundation to design, build, and unveil this engaging place for students to learn and grow. 

Heart of America worked with Moss Elementary and Fort Worth ISD to select unique design and tech elements. Metroplex Cadillac Dealers provided funding to complete the transformation which includes a gift of 178 new books for the library. Every student will also receive three new books to take home. 

School officials, teachers, students, and volunteers will unveil the library makeover with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Three weeks later, on Thursday, October 24, volunteers from Cadillac will complete another exciting tech lab makeover at Pleasant Grove Elementary School in Dallas.
