Dear Monument Academy Families,
Monument Academy is excited to be part of the Adopt D38 district-wide donation program for the 2019-2020 school year. This program allows you to specifically designate the recipient of your generous donation. If you choose to “Adopt-A-Teacher” that teacher will receive 100% of your contribution, and your donation is tax deductible. Teachers will use donations for classroom enhancements such as books, visual aids, manipulatives, and learning games.
Families, individuals, groups, and businesses may adopt a teacher, department/grade, or designate the school to receive their donations. Some employers will even match your donation. Donations may also be combined to ‘adopt’ at any level. Sponsor’s identities will be published on the school web page, within the newsletter, and listed within the building. A Certificate of Adoption will also be awarded.
To adopt a teacher, write the teacher’s name on the Adoption Form and donate $165 (the number of days in a school year). For a department adoption the amount is $250, and to adopt the school $365 (a dollar a day) is the amount. Monument Academy would welcome your inquiry as to how your donation will be used. Feel free to contact the teacher you choose or the Department Chair for information.
Research indicates that teachers spend $500 annually out of their personal funds for their classroom supplies. One of the goals of this program is to allow you to offset that expense. As a community member, I believe it’s important to support the outstanding teachers at Monument Academy; I hope you agree. Let's make this school year a memorable one by adopting all MA teachers.
Please make an adoption and support the future of the students at MA! Adoptions may be made by credit card, cash or by check made payable to Monument Academy. Don’t delay, adopt today!
Please contact me with any questions. Thank you for your support.
Georgina Gittins, Adopt D38 Director
