Adopt D38

  • Dear Palmer Ridge High School Families,


    Palmer Ridge High School is excited to be part of the Adopt D38, district-wide donation program for the 2016-2017 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. Palmer-Ridge teachers obtained $15,025 from your adoptions. 

    Individuals, families, and businesses may choose to adopt a teacher, department, or designate the school to receive their donations. 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, choose a teacher and "make a donation" of $165 (the number of days in a school year). For a department adoption the amount is $250, and to adopt the school, $365 is the amount. Palmer Ridge High School 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, I believe it’s important to support the outstanding teachers at Palmer Ridge High School. I hope you agree. Let’s make the 2016-2017 school year a memorable one with all PRHS teachers being adopted.


    Please make an adoption and support the future of the students at PRHS. Adoptions may be made online using a credit card or by check made payable to Palmer Ridge High School.

    Please contact me with any questions. Thank you for your support.
