Frequently Asked Questions

  • PLES logo Dear Palmer Lake Elementary Families,

    Palmer Lake Elementary is excited to be part of the Adopt D38, district-wide donation program for this school year. Lewis-Palmer School District is ecstatic about the success of Adopt D38. Palmer Lake teachers obtained $19,210 from your adoptions. Teachers receive 100% of the donation, and your donation is 100% tax-deductible*. Teachers utilize your donation for classroom enhancements like books, visual aids, manipulatives, and learning games.

    Families, individuals, groups, and businesses may adopt a teacher, grade, or school, including enrichment and support staff. Some employers will even match your donation. Donations can be combined to "adopt" at any level. Names of sponsors will be recognized in school publications, school building, school website, and with a Certificate of Adoption.

    To adopt a teacher of your selection, donate $165, the number of days in the school year. To adopt a grade of your choice, donate $250. To adopt your school, donate $365, a dollar a day. Please check with the school, grade, or teacher for specific information on how your donation will be used.

    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 Palmer Lake Elementary. Let's make this school year a memorable one by adopting all PLES teachers. 

    Please make an adoption and support the future of our children! Adoptions can be made online for credit card payments or by check or cash at Palmer Lake Elementary. Check your school's website for the list of adoptions. Don't delay, adopt today!

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