Mrs. Bolduc, Betsy Ross Elementary School
"Thank you so much for your amazing generosity to donate and fully fund my project. This is my first project to get funded. My 5th grade students are super excited to read a new book and collaborate with their groups to create a book trailer. My schools focus is technology so this perfect. My students have been working on using Google docs, slides and Goggle classroom. Creating iMovies will be a fun new experience for them. Without your generosity this would not have been possible. I can’t thank you enough for generosity."
Mrs. Argueta, Los Angeles Unified School District
"Thank you very much for your donation to my classroom. The amount of paper provided will help my students continue their education without having to worry about supplies! I teach in a low-income area, with above a 95% of Free-Reduced Lunch. My students should not worry about finances, yet many do when asked to purchase supplies for the year. I try and consolidate and ask the bare minimum, for I don’t want any to feel that they can not contribute to the class. Throughout the year, both grade levels (7th and 8th) will be writing at least 6 essays; that is a lot of paper! We as a school are pushing the limits of expectations so that our students will be prepared for not only high school, but for college. They are learning that in life, hard work does pay off. We really appreciate your donation, and want you to know that your donation will help both in and out of the classroom. My students are now prepared for what is being asked of them, and knowing that it came from a donation, they are learning that there are good people in this world. Thank you for that life lesson."
Ms. Borum, Animo Jefferson Charter Middle School
"Words can not express how grateful I am for you to donate to this cause. Since starting the Harry Potter club on campus, I see students talking about reading, wanting to read, and sharing their enthusiasm with others. I currently have 40 kids who are in the Harry Potter book club, and still everyday I am having students come up and ask to join, so they can read! None of this would have been possible without your generous donations. Because of you, my students can continue to love to read and hopefully this love will expand into other areas of their life. Also, with them having their very own copy of the book, students can share their new found love of reading with their siblings and other students. Students have a sense of pride taking out their very own book from their backpack and engaging in the novel. I can’t say enough that this wouldn’t have been possible without you, and my students and I are very grateful for all you have done for us."
Mr. Savage, Monte Vista Elementary School
"Thank all of you so much for providing my class with magnets to explore magnetism in our science unit. Science is so often overlooked in the lower elementary grades and we have so few physical items for the students to explore with. There also is no budget from the school district these days for us to buy science equipment so if we want them the money always has to come out of our pocket. My students are excited to explore magnetism with them when they arrive."
Kathryn G. Kuczaj, Sam Houston State University
"A BIG thank you to ATRS for all your help! We could not have participated in the College Move-out challenge without your company, especially at the last minute. Please let us know when you're planning to bring clothing and shoe donation bins to Huntsville TX. We would definitely love to partner with your recycling team again. Thanks again and Happy Earth Day!"
Mrs Linne, Eisehower Elementary School
"Dear ATRS SoCal: Thank you so very much for the wonderful playhouse furniture donation. The students and parents are very excited. I really appreciate your support to help make my transitional kindergarten a great year. Love, Mrs. Linne."
