This is a wonderful week to make a donation at donorschoose.org.
Select a project you like, and add SPARK as your promotional code/match code. This provides a dollar-for-dollar match courtesy the Donors Choose board.
My school is already at critical alert status for some supplies: glue sticks, markers - and we have one hundred days to go. I haven't seen a Sharpie I didn't buy myself in four years. Other schools are in similar straits. If you can, lend a hand - donate, and demand California fully funds its schools.
