Donors Choose

The best part about receiving presents… is sharing them!

With the help of Oprah Winfrey and Bing we were able to support our local schools. Not many of us know about DonorsChoose.org. That’s a wonderful place where teachers can register and put a wish list of items needed for their classrooms, school projects, activities.

After some research we have picked 2 SeminoleCounty schools:

AltamonteElementary School with their “Get Fit at AES” project to promote healthy lifestyle and fun fitness for their kids.

WekivaElementary School with “Wekiva Readers are Leaders!” project for Accelerated Reader books.

Kids are our Future! By investing in our kids, we are investing in our Future!

Students of AltamonteElementary School were thrilled to receive their wish list items! They even sent us some pictures and a thank you letter…… (Kati, please add the letter and photos, if possible)

Now that Wekiva Readers are Leaders! has all the support needed, it will soon become a reality in Mrs. Curtis’s classroom:

“I can’t fully express my joy, excitement, and thanks for your donation to my project. It is great to see that you share my vision for reaching children. It is always with great pleasure that we are able to match our struggling lowest readers with high-interest books at their reading level. Students at our school will be thrilled with these new books! Also included in our selections were copies…”

Read the entire note and consider replying to Mrs. Curtis!

With the help of a gift card from Bing, you’ve made a real difference for this classroom.

Dear yulia Deeter, 

I can’t fully express my joy, excitement, and thanks for your donation to my project. It is great to see that you share my vision for reaching children. It is always with great pleasure that we are able to match our struggling lowest readers with high-interest books at their reading level. Students at our school will be thrilled with these new books! Also included in our selections were copies of the current year Sunshine State Award books. It will be wonderful to direct our higher readers to these well-read and loved titles, even after their “year in the spotlight”. Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart! Your generous donations will really make a difference in the lives of children of all ages, for many years to come!
Thank you!!!!

With gratitude,
Mrs. C.

Here is a thank you letter from Derin’s PE teacher for donating $100 for “Get Fit at AES”. I haven’t heard anything from the other school where we donated $400 for books.

Dear yulia Deeter,

Thank you so much for donating to our project! The students used the new parachute and could not believe their eyes when they saw a shiny, brand new, colorful parachute. They were so used to a dirty, ripped one. I know they feel valued when they are trusted with new equipment. The students had such fun using the new parachute.

Thank you for the Fun-Net. The students love soccer and talking about the World Cup. They were so excited to play soccer with a brand new soccer goal/net. They were used to using cones, so this was the first time they got to use a real soccer goal/net.

With gratitude,
Mrs. D.
