Financial Donation Request

Dear Parents or Guardians: 

We need your help. The state fiscal crisis continues to deplete our school funds for required classroom instructional materials. We want to continue to provide field trips and special projects for our first graders. We do not have adequate funds to cover these costs. which are about $45 per first grader. Any contributions to help defray these costs will be greatly appreciated. . 

This cost will also include a Don Callejon "First Grade Field Trip" shirt in our school colors; blue & orange. This shirt will be worn on field trips and can also be worn on our Friday Spirit Days. We can assure you that no student will be denied any opportunity of materials, going on field trips, or receiving a shirt, and their grades will in no way be affected. 

It would be greatly appreciated if you could please send in your child's donation as soon as possible. The money and shirt sizes will be necessary in the process for us to order the shirts and plan our first field trip. 

Parents who wish to donate may submit a check (cash contributions cannot be accepted) made payable to "Don Callejon School." Donations may be turned in to your child's first grade teacher. We thank you in advance for your support to make these activities possible for our students. 

Sincerely, 
The First Grade Teachers
