Donors Choose

Each year, teachers & staff are faced with budget constraints. DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Find out what our teachers projects are here:

Current DonorsChoose Projects

Here's how it works: public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.

Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school.

You'll get photos of your project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If you give over $50, you'll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.

At DonorsChoose.org, you can give as little as $1 and get the same level of choice, transparency, and feedback that is traditionally reserved for someone who gives millions. We call it citizen philanthropy.

PTA Events

Another way to help out is to volunteer on a PTA event or other type of event. The PTA funds important enrichment programs such as: Mission Science Workshop, arts, library, music, and garden.

Our kindergarten play structure is the perfect place for our youngest children 
to have their own play space.
