I have been fortunate in the past to have several of my projects funded through Donorschoose. Most of the non-fiction and fiction books in our GATE classroom are from donors who chose our projects and many of the hands-on activities (ask them about the owl pellet dissection) we have done were also funded through this wonderful organization. These donors are from all over the country. Our gifted program does not receive any funds to purchase supplies for our classrooms and we also do not receive any textbooks. I either purchase things myself or depend on Donorschoose when possible.
We have three outstanding proposals and I would appreciate your support in making our new projects a reality. See my current proposals at http://www.donorschoose.org/teachfine
Thank you for considering helping out with our request.
