We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with DonorsChoose, which has provided resources for hundreds of classroom projects within the Penn-Trafford School District. The funds raised through DonorsChoose have enabled our teachers to inspire their students with amazing projects, improve their classroom environments and supplement lessons with hands-on materials. Our students are learning and engaging in new and very creative ways!

DonorsChoose is an amazing platform for our teachers to share their ideas with the community, and it’s incredible to see that the support comes from all over the world
