I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for our classroom at DonorsChoose.org:
Chromebooks On Every Table!
Give to our classroom by September 20, 2014 and your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code INSPIRE on the payment page and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100).
If you chip in to help our class, you'll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks.
Thanks so much,
P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my classroom, please pass this along!
