My oldest child is a kindergartener at Hampton but I have been a special ed teacher for 19 years in another district. For many years I taught adult SXI (18-26 yr olds) in a school with very low parent support and participation. I know how hard it can be to want to provide worthwhile opportunities for my students but not have the means to do so unless it was coming out of my own pocket. Adaptive art is so worthwhile. Good luck in your pursuits!

Hello! My name is Ms. Kristi McAllister!

Here is a little more about me…

I am a teacher for the Adult Transition Program and Services (ATPS) at the Dr. John M. Schultz Educational Campus.

I love my students because…

Even though I am the teacher, they have already taught me so much. While on the exterior it may not seem that they have opinions and wants, they most certainly do. I have taken the time to pay very close attention to their movements, eye gazes, facial expressions and body language to understand them and see them for who they are. They each are unique and have beautiful personalities! They are truly a gift.

More about my project…

RCS adult transition program and services (ATPS) students with multiple impairments (SXI) would love the opportunity to attend an art class every week at the Paint a Miracle studio located in downtown Rochester (30 classes this school year).

This opportunity will give students a chance to create art that they can showcase and sell if they so choose.

The main principles of the ATPS is for students to develop independence with the community through community relationships. This program offers the opportunity to create art with the support and accommodations that students to be independent and participate fully within our community.

Paint a Miracle is so thrilled to have our students attend their program, that they have offered a grant for half the cost.

♥ This is where you can help! ♥

Help us match the grant!

Your support will foster independence, community connections, and the opportunity to participate in the community. This will enhance the lives of students in a positive way! Thank you for your consideration!

Any donation is appreciated!

Hello! My name is Ms. Cayla Scharoll!

Here is a little more about me and my students…

I am a teacher for the Adult Transition Program and Services (ATPS) at the Dr. John M. Schultz Educational Campus.

The RCS Adult Transition Program and Services (ATPS) and students with multiple impairments (SXI) would love the opportunity to attend an art class every week at the Paint-A-Miracle studio located in downtown Rochester.

In 2019, the RCS community helped fully funded a same request and allowed our students to attend up to 30 classes that school year!! The students were ECSTATIC!! 

They all had an opportunity to create, showcase, and even sell their art, if they chose to do so!! Every donor that contributed to their joy received a personalized thank you note with their art from outside. THANK YOU!

"Take A Minute" Calm Environment

Hello! My name is Ms. Tracye Schwartz.

I am a Learning Consultant at Adams High School. I am seeking your help to raise enough funds to create a “Take A Minute” Calm Environment Space that is more inviting and serene to accommodate and comfort to students with special needs, 504 and/or IEP, anxiety disorders, or any student struggling with social emotional health while taking assessments or working on projects outside of the classroom.

This is my proposal’s compelling why…

Often times, students with special needs, be it a 504 accommodation plan, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, or any child struggling with his/her social and emotional health seemingly feel more comfortable taking assessments or working on assignments and projects outside of the classroom in a non-traditional, quiet and calm setting.

It is our desire at Adams High School (AHS) to create an environment of tranquillity and quiet to accommodate and comfort this unique population of students.

With the use of alternative seating, study carrels, privacy screens, and an area rug to control noise, we feel these students will be able to cope better with their test anxiety and consequently, improve their assessment performances.

Moreover, students can access the space to receive extra classroom supports, particularly in math and language arts.

♥ This is where you can help! ♥

Help us reach our goal!

Currently, we do not have appropriate furniture to accommodate the amount of students who are accessing the room.

With your support, the following items and furniture will be purchased to create the “Take A Minute” space and provide students with the opportunity to self-regulate, refocus, and reduce stress, anger, and/or anxiety and be fully engaged in the learning process.

Thank you for your consideration!

Any donation is appreciated!

Where Your Donation Goes

  • 12 Desks
  • 12 Chairs
  • 4 Study Carrels
  • 1 package of Privacy Shields
  • 1 Standing Desk
  • 4 Computer Chairs
  • 1 Essential Oil Diffuser and Oils
  • 3rd party payment processing fee
  • Fulfillment labor & materials

♥ This is where you can help! ♥

Hello! My name is Ms. Mallory Molnar

Our students at McGregor elementary absolutely enjoy coming into our art and architecture studios! We want to help keep their excitement intrigued and are seeking your help to raise enough funds to purchase a 6′ X 9′ Shapes and Colors Activity carpet

The Shapes and Colors Activity carpet is ideal for classroom management, organized classroom seating and providing the perfect setting for classroom activities,

This is our proposal’s compelling why…

This learning space will help support the learning for all students, TK-5, at McGregor Elementary!

At every level, we will be using this for critiques to help students reflect and advance their works of arts as well as during demonstrations. For the younger artists, it will help reinforce the learning and relationships of shapes and colors.
Art is SO beneficial to children! Children’s brains are actually designed to learn through play and arts.

♥ This is where you can help ♥

Help us reach our goal!

We are very excited to connect with the community and help our students excel in learning. Thank you for your consideration and your  support to positively impact the education of our McGregor Transitional Kindergarteners through 5th grade!

First and Foremost – THANK YOU – for taking time to visit my proposal!

Hello! My name is Ms. Christie DeSano

The American Sign Language (ASL) class at Stoney Creek High School provides a unique visually engaging experience for students and having comfortable seating is essential!

To help keep their experience and interest intrigued in ASL, we are seeking your help to raise enough funds to purchase 15 Big Joe Dorm Bean Bag Chairs to help transition classroom furniture to flexible seating.

The Big Joe Dorm Bean Bag Chairs are made with SmartMax Fabric: Tough, stain resistant, water-resistant, and easily cleaned with a damp cloth!

This is our proposal’s compelling why…

In ASL classes, students use visual language as their main mode of communication.

It is essential to have seating that is conducive to this type of environment. This grant is a request to start transitioning classroom furniture to flexible seating.

Flexible seating would allow students to easily move into conversation circles. After surveying each class, flexible seating is something a majority of students feel like would increase their comfort level and ultimately their level of engagement.

♥ This is where you can help ♥

Help us reach our goal!

We are very excited to connect with the community and help our students enjoy and enhance their means of in learning in a very safe and comfortable setting.

Thank you for your consideration and your  support to positively impact the education of our Stoney Creek ASL students today and for many years to come!

I believe in helping the development of our communities especially those individuals who may need some extra help to reach their full potential. I recognize software tools such as BrainPOP may provide opportunities during these challenging times with the COVID distancing and virtual learning requirements. HOWEVER, I would like to share my opinion that I believe individuals with autism are best developed through programs with outdoor activities, focusing on nature and a very high level of interpersonal skill development. When circumstances permit, I encourage you and others doing this work to move away from digital media and move towards live programs and tangible media. Keep up your good intentions!

Would like to see the plan to execute this program. How does one get a copy? How is success defined?

Hello! My name is Ms. Lindsay Land!

I am a teacher at Rochester High School. I am seeking your help to raise enough funds to redesign my career and technical business computer lab classroom to prepare my students for a more realistic and innovative co-working corporate setting! 

This is my proposal’s compelling why…

By replacing the center computer table and desks with collaborative whiteboard top tables, our students will be able to brainstorm, design, build and discuss business assignments and projects together, while safely distancing themselves! 

More about my project…

The Building a Community thru a Classroom Setting project will impact all students that enroll in career and technical business classes at Rochester High School including sophomores, juniors and seniors. In addition to Investment Club and Business Professionals of America (BPA) will benefit from collaborative whiteboard top tables as these groups work together to accomplish future goals!

Hope comes from a community of caring!

Partnerships are critical for success.

Dear RCS community,

The Rochester Community School District is part of a treasured community, where partnerships between families, schools, and businesses are integral for student success.

With the constant changes in our world, especially in our current environment, children feel most supported when their family at home and their school family are working together.  The RCS Foundation works with the district to support the whole child—academically, socially, and emotionally. 

United during and after the pandemic

As we plan for the new school year and what it will look like, together we can ensure all children have access to the same resources.

This is where you can help!

Help us reach our goal and support every student!

Your support with funding resources to equip this new way of learning and living will prepare students to be resilient, and help them achieve social and emotional wellness through vigilance, learning and community care.

Please join us in our efforts to help keep student learning equitable and ensure all students are properly equipped, prepared and confident to return to school.

Any donation is appreciated!

Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps! Thank you for your consideration!

This is Where Your Donation Will Go:

  • Chromebook cases (Minimum of $350,000)
    • RCS continues to invest in technology to enhance student learning.
    • RCS will be providing 1:1 device (every student, returning in-person and virtually, will receive one computer Chromebook device)
    • Over 15,000 Chromebook cases will be needed to provide each student with one to protect the device from any damages.
    • Chromebook cases bought in bulk average $19.99/case. Generally they cost anywhere from $17-$35.

RCS will follow the requirements in the MI Safe Schools Roadmap. As we mitigate risk of COVID-19 spread, the RCS Foundation is seeking support in efforts to help RCS focus on:

  1. Personal Protective Equipment
  2. Hygiene and
  3. Spacing and movement

Personal Protective Equipment

In phase 4, facial coverings are required for: all staff; pre-K-12 students in hallways and common areas; students in grades 6-12 in classrooms; k-5 students in classroom unless they remain with cohort throughout the day with no close contact with other classes; and all people on buses.

  • Washable cloth face masks (minimum $60,000)
    • RCS will supply disposable masks.
    • Goal: Providing three (3) washable cloth face masks for each student upon re-entry.
    • Bulk purchase – Box of 50 averages $170

Hygiene 

In phase 4, schools will be required: to provide supplies including soap, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, paper towels, tissues and informational signs.

With 13 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 3 high schools and an alternative high school, supplies will consistently be depleting. With your support, we can make sure we are never in a position where we need to wait for funding to be released to purchase more supplies.

  • Supplies to protect all students and staff within the buildings (i.e. disposable masks, soap, hand sanitizer, paper towels, tissues wipes): $150,000
    • The safety of our students, staff and community are always our priority.

When the pandemic is over, we have to consider the mental health impacts of re-entry. Social-emotional wellness of students and staff are essential!

Training session and webinars would be presented in a partnership with the Center for Trauma Resilient Communities.

  • Our long-term vision is to have a clinician in every school so all children can get the social-emotional support that is needed.
  • 3rd party payment processing fee
  • Fulfillment labor & materials

Total Projected Goal   $500,000
