One of our employees, Claudia Urbieta chose Donorschoose.org for her charity. The project she was interested in funding was for a special needs classes for 1st through 3rd grades at an inner-city school.
Dear Jaburg Wilk,
My students were so excited when we opened up the packages that came to school with our wonderful materials in them! I allowed students to play with the materials at first, and then we talked about all of the different uses that they have for us in the classroom. Students have been using these materials to help them better learn many different concepts.
My students love the file folder games. They are so engaged while learning about different concepts that they lose track of time!
Thank you so much for your generous donation.
