Donate to Skinner’s Classrooms, Double your Donation!

Two of our Special Ed teachers, Ms. Breen and Ms. Rydning, and Math Teacher Mr. English have Donorschoose Project posted for new Chromebooks for their classrooms. Many of their students don’t have access to technology at home and dedicated classroom Chromebooks will open up a whole new world to them!

There is a 100% Matching Code – “SPARK” active we believe for the first two projects listed below! Double your Donation! $20 becomes $40! $30 becomes $60!  Don’t delay, the code expires on or before 8/29 for all 3 projects.
