Adopt D38

  • Hello Palmer Ridge High School Teachers, 

    Welcome your school's annual Adopt D38 program! Lewis-Palmer School District is ecstatic with the success of Adopt D38. Palmer Ridge teachers have obtained $41,565 from adoptions. You receive 100% of the donation. The donation is utilized to enhance your classroom.

    Families, community members, and businesses may adopt a teacher, department, or school to include Support Services. Name of sponsor will be recognized in school publications, school building, and school website. Each sponsor will receive a Certificate of Adoption from the school and a thank you letter from you.

    An adopted teacher will receive $165. The teachers of the adopted department will receive a combined total of $250. The adopted school will receive $365. Teachers will get the donation when receipts for qualifying items are presented to Mrs. Bobbi Cordova. 

    As a Lewis-Palmer School District parent and community member, I’m excited to chair this program. Schools that have an Adopt-A-Class program have been delighted with it's success! To ensure the success of this program, the following guidelines should be adhered to: 

    • Please use your donation within 45 days of receipt or by May 22, 2020 (whichever occurs first).
    • Please send the sponsor a “Thank You” letter outlining how the donation was utilized. You will be given a Certificate of Adoption to include with your letter. Please complete your letter in a timely manner. (Lewis-Palmer School District Administration will send a tax receipt.)
    • Please use the district's sales tax exempt number along with a school check or school credit card for all purchases. Sales tax is not reimbursable!
    • Please purchase only items that will enhance your student's academic curriculum such as books, visual aids, manipulative's, and learning games. Candy, toys, prizes, or class parties are examples of unacceptable purchases. If you have any questions on qualifying items, please check with Mrs. Evela Gillette prior to purchase.
    • Please provide Mrs. Gillette with a list of items purchased. All items are the property of Palmer Ridge High School. Consumable products used are an exception.

    Thank you for your assistance with these guidelines. This will be a fantastic year with your district wide Adopt D38 donation program. Let’s work together for a memorable school year!
