Introducing DonorsChoose.org

Donors choose logo

Principal Rocke and the LES teachers are excited to work with DonorsChoose.org to bring LES families the opportunity to donate directly to LES teacher requested projects.  LES PTA supports many programs in LES but the LES PTA is not able to fund all teacher requests each year. This is a great crowdfunding option to donate or ask friends/family to donate to these LES teacher specific wish list projects.

To learn more about DonorsChoose please take a moment to watch this short video:

This summer during one of the in-service sessions the LES teachers wrote various classroom requests with the help of the Horace Mann company.  LES parent Jared Poff is one of Horace Mann’s liaisons and brought this wonderful program to LES.

Subject: My students need your help!

Hi Friends,

I want to make sure my students have the resources they need to succeed. That’s why I’ve created a classroom project request at DonorsChoose.org, an award-winning charity.

I’m asking for donations of any size to help my kids. For the next 4 days, donations made to my project will be doubled (limits apply). If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your donation will brighten my students’ school year, and you’ll get photos and thank yous from our class.

Check out the exciting things we’re up to in my classroom:

3- Delight in the Art Classroom or (selected LES program)

To have your donation matched, enter the promo code LIFTOFF during checkout. This awesome match offer lasts through August 24.

My students and I greatly appreciate your support!

Thank you again to the Poff family and Horace Mann group for bringing this wonderful program to LES.
