Thank you Clomon and Kirkman Families!!!

DonorsChoose Project FUNDED?!? YES! WOOO HOOO!

A huge thank you to the Clomon and Kirkman families for putting this project over the top! I confirmed with DonorsChoose the project and we should receive the Chromebooks in 1 to 2 weeks.

In about 24 hours we…us…YOU raised $955 for our students. Thank you to all who donated or who spread the word around via email or social media. We will have other project throughout the year which I will share.

As for right now, we all deserve a round of applause for the support. You made a difference in our students’ learning.

A very sincere thank you! 🙂


Thank you Carreon and Jelani Families!

WOO HOOOO!!! We are just about half-way to our goal! Thank you so much Jelani and Carreon familes! We’ve got $455 to go.

We’ve raised $500 in about 17 hours! If we keep this rate going, we should have new Chromebooks ordered for students by the end of the week!

Please keep the momentum going. Share the word with extended family and friends. Remember you can double donations until August 31 using the match code SPARK or JUMPSTART at checkout.

Thank you on behalf of each of our students for your support!!!!


Thank you Kristie Haynes and Kaoru Cruz!!!

Thanks go out to Kristie Haynes and Kaoru Cruz! Kristie’s daughter is 1/2 of our Ella population in class. 🙂 Kaoru’s son, Antone, is now attending Cosumnes Oaks High School and was a former student in our class!

Thank you to both families for your support and belief in our students! We’ve raised $250 in 13 hours.

We’ve got $705 to go which could be finished off with $352.50 in donations doubled using match code SPARK or JUMPSTART at checkout.

Can you help spread the word or chip in a few dollars?


A huge thank you to Tom and Tina Sandlin and Barbara Martin (Brayden’s grandma) for donating to our DonorsChoose project online!

A huge thank you to Suzie Boss, Edutopia blogger, educational expert, and friend of mine.

Want to help?

Donate between now and August 31 and DOUBLE your donation using checkout code SPARK or JUMPSTART. You can turn a $25 donation into $50? Yep. Matching funds have helped our students obtain approximately $30,000 of equipment since 2006!

PLEASE make any contribution you can or pass along our project proposal to extended family, friends, colleagues, or anyone who loves your child and wants them to get the equipment they need to succeed! 🙂

Our proposal is to obtain 3 last Chromebooks so everyone can have their own device to use throughout the year.

Please consider helping today.

First DonorsChoose Project to Get Last of the Chromebooks Live!

We have 23 Chromebooks with two more on the way. That means we need three more to be a true 1-to-1 classroom. There are two ways you can  help make this a reality:

1) Donate to our class project and for the next 7 days (Until August 31 at 9:00 PM PST) DOUBLE your donation by using the promo code SPARK” or “JUMPSTART” at checkout. Turn a $25 or $100 donation into $50 or $200? Yep.

2) Pass our DonorsChoose project along to friends, family, work colleagues and ask them to either donate or spread the word. There’s no pressure or hard sell involved. We’ve had donations from Tokyo, Lithuania, Ohio, New York, and all throughout the U.S. and California, because people have helped spread the word!
