Educating The Whole Child

Adopt D38

  • Dear Ray E. Kilmer Elementary Families,


    Ray E. Kilmer Elementary is excited to be part of the Adopt D38, district-wide donation program for the 2016-2017 school year. Lewis-Palmer School District is ecstatic with the success of Adopt D38. Kilmer teachers obtained $22,985 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 services and specials. Donations can be combined to "adopt" at any level. Names of sponsors will be recognized in the school publications, school building, school website, and with a Certificate of Adoption. 


    To adopt, choose a teacher "make a donation" of $165, the number of days in the school year. For a grade level adoption, donate $250 and to adopt the 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.


    The goal of this program is to aid the teachers that work so hard for our children. On average, teachers spend $500 out of their own pocket for their classrooms annually. Let's support our outstanding teachers at Ray E. Kilmer Elementary and make the 2016-2017 school year a memorable one, with all teachers being adopted. Don't delay, adopt today! 


    Please make an adoption and support the future of our children! Adoptions can be made online for credit card payments and by check or cash at Ray E. Kilmer Elementary.

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


    Georgina Gittins, Adopt D38 Director
