Leaf 742



The Adopt-A-Classroom project connects businesses and individuals to specific classrooms to help provide needed supplies that teachers and families usually have to purchase.

Each fall, businesses or individuals can “adopt” a classroom in one of our District 742 schools of their choice by making a tax-deductible $250 contribution for the needed supplies. Parents and teachers spend hundreds of dollars to provide basic supplies for classroom use. From the ordinary, like permanent markers, pencils and notebooks to the more unique like sheet music, science kits, dry ice and mice for snake food; our teachers and parents of students spend their own money to provide a quality educational experience.

While some classroom teachers or families can afford these expenditures, many cannot. LEAF wants to help all students have the advantage of a quality classroom experience.

Businesses or individuals can choose to adopt a specific classroom at a specific school, or make a $250 donation to LEAF and allow LEAF to choose a classroom. LEAF will then inform the donor of the classroom they have adopted. The business or individual donor will receive a Certificate of Adoption that identifies the classroom they have adopted.

The teachers of District 742 have moved by this outpouring of community support and continue to express their thanks. Read some of their comments and testimonials here.
