Help a classroom in support of Supporting Newtown Teachers

"The selfless spirit of the teaching profession -- exhibited so heroically by Sandy Hook's educators during the tragic events of December 14th -- continues to be displayed by the teachers of Newtown on a daily basis. Districtwide, these educators are returning to their schools in the face of profound grief, anxiety and challenge -- but with great strength, resiliency, and determination. We salute the teachers of Newtown and will work together with nonprofit partners such as DonorsChoose.org to provide them with support as they reenter and restart their classrooms."

Thanks to an outpouring of support, DonorsChoose.org was able to deliver a $250 gift card to every teacher in Newtown to help rebuild their classroom or support another classroom in need. While this campaign has come to a close, we hope you'll support another teacher in honor of the Newtown community.
