Register Today for Adopt-A-Classroom


Wondering how you can get some of the things you really want for your classroom without having to have it approved, completing a purchase order and then waiting forever for all of this to be processed?

Adopt-A-ClassroomWell, now you no longer have to do that when you register your classroom with Adopt-A-Classroom. Simply have friends, parents, local businesses, family members, and even former students provide you with supplies. Adopt-A-Classroom allows any teacher to register then anyone can make tax-deductible donations to your class to help you purchase the materials your classroom needs. This program is easy-to-use and 100% goes to YOU!

To get started simply go to our registration page.  Be sure to choose TeachAde.com in the 'How did you hear about Adopt-A-Classroom?' drop-down box. Once school gears back up in the fall, you will be glad you did. You can write personal notes to the folks in your network over the summer asking for donations and you can tell them that their donations are 100% tax deductible as well. It's a win/win program.

What are you waiting for?
