Fall Greetings!
We have launched the 2010-11 year for Impact on Education with energy and creativity.
  • Amy Lee joined the Impact team in August.  Amy is our Marketing Coordinator and focuses her talent on developing and advancing our Ambassador Program, a program to build better relationships with all our schools.
  • Diana Lewis, Office  Manager, continues to manage the office, events, and business functions of Impact.
  • Louise Garrels, Marketing & Communications Manager works to enhance our messaging using innovative communication tools and manages our data for analysis and refinement.
I am honored to have joined Impact in July. Impact on Education has been a favorite and treasured organization of mine for 25 years and I will take seriously my responsibility to provide inspirational leadership for the mission of Impact!
We partnered with BVSD within their Fire Response Center providing backpacks and school supplies to families in need of help. We created the ICARE effort (Impact's Community Assistance and Response Effort) to receive monetary donations to support teachers, families and staff impacted by the recent tragic fires. Donate online, by mail or by phone.

Crayons to Calculators
The Crayons to Calculators Partnership was wildly successful this year. Thanks to hundreds of volunteers, over 7,100 backpacks were distributed to students in need within Boulder Valley and St. Vrain School Districts. The support from the community was overwhelming and heartfelt! We are lucky to live in a region that supports our children!

Special Note:  Though the biggest need for school supplies is traditionally the beginning of each school year, we are finding that an increasing number of students, schools, and families find themselves needing supplies during the school year.  We do our very best to meet the requests.  To help us meet these needs, consider supporting Crayons to Calculators throughout the school year.
3A SignVote Children First
Impact on Education is co-chairing the 3A Campaign to pass the 3A tax override. 3A will restore funding to classrooms, will enhance early childhood education, and will attract and retain quality teachers through competitive salaries and benefits.  

Please let us know if you would like to show your support by putting a yard sign up at your home. Yard signs are available at Impact's office.
