The Perfect Gift: Adopt-A-Classroom


The holiday season is in full swing, and like many educators across the country, you are enjoying this special time of year with your students. In just a few weeks your students will begin bringing in their gifts to show how special you are to them. This year, help parents out by letting them know they can make a tax-deductible contribution to you to help their children succeed.


To get started, just create your free Adopt-A-Classroom account. Please mark down TeachAde NEA Member Benefits in the "How did you hear about Adopt-A-Classroom?" drop-down box.



Then send out an email to parents, or download and print out this Donor Card to send home. Parents and students have the best intentions, and with Adopt-A-Classroom they can help this year, and for years to come.

And in the spirit of sharing, print this flyer for your colleagues. 

If you have any questions check out the informational video on our site, or contact us.
