We have the chance to infuse our classroom with $5000 worth of technology and supplies. Donors Choose is holding a contest this week. I believe they are trying to get people familiar with their charity. This gives us a great opportunity. They are giving rewards to classrooms with the most donors. Please consider helping fund our project. Please share this with friends, family, and others from Granite who may be willing to donate.
If we can fund this project with at least 50 donors by the time the contest ends, our classroom will get a bonus of $3000! If we can fund the project by Friday using the funding match code (below), this $2000 project will only cost $1000. Please help and share if you can. The donation is tax deductible. Donors Choose will email you a receipt.
We need at least 50 different people to donate ONLY $20 to the project ‘Supplies for Super Second Graders’ by Miss Walker.
We need them to enter the match code so that the donation will turn into $40. The match codeis: INSPIRE.Donations need to happen by this Friday, before the match code expires.
Donations need to be paid by credit card, PayPal, or Amazon payments.
Steps to get to the project; 1. Donorschoose.org 2. Projects 3. State/Utah 4. District/Canyons District 5. School/Granite Elementary 6. Ms. Walker/Supplies for Super Second Graders
If the project gets funded, you can still donate to future projects and help us get the bonus for our class. We need at least 50 donors this week. J Here is the link.

As we continue to work to improve our parking lot procedures please be aware that it is unlawful to park across the painted crosswalk. This year Sandy City has provided us with a crossing guard to assist student crossing 9800 S. If you are waiting to enter through the pick up lane or picking up your student on 9800 S. you may not be parked on the painted crosswalk. Thank you for your cooperation.
