What is the Adopt-A

At Nina Harris, Every student matters and every moment counts!!!
Nina Harris ESE Center has implemented a program called “Adopt-A-Classroom,“ and we are
very excited to share it with you. This program provides parents, businesses, and members of our
community the opportunity to join our school family. The rising costs of supplies and equipment have
forced our teachers to spend their own money on educational materials for their classrooms. The
Adopt-A-Classroom Program is a way to assist the teachers and enhance the education of our
Any business, individual, or group of individuals can sponsor or “adopt” a classroom with a
donation of any amount. $150.00 is the standard donation. The donor can select a specific
classroom or let us choose one for them. You can adopt as many classrooms as you wish – our goal
is to have every class adopted!
Once a classroom is adopted, 100 percent of your donation goes into that classroom for
academic enrichment. The teacher is given the opportunity to determine how best to spend the
money in his or her classroom. For example, some teachers may decide to purchase computer
software, books, visuals, or supplies. Others may choose to combine their money to purchase an item
that can be used by a number of students. All donations are tax deductible.
Your participation in the Adopt-A-Classroom Program is very much appreciated. All sponsors
will receive a thank you letter from the classroom, a sign next to the classroom door, their name will
be presented on the school marquee and a thank you in our school newsletter will go out to all
students. We are confident that you will find the Program a worthwhile investment for yourself, your
organization, and most importantly, the children who benefit. If you have any questions about the
program, please feel free to contact
