When you adopt a school, you become the benefactor who makes it possible for up to 150 students to experience the wonder this program creates and the results it produces. Your gift will provide the teachers and students in all 2nd grade classrooms at one school with our innovative curriculum, ongoing guidance, support, and all of the books, stuffed animals, and materials they need to be successful in their classrooms. To express our gratitude, your name (or the name of your business) will be included in the program manual and on our website for the school you adopt!
