2019 - 2020 39 Days of Giving Message

It takes a village to raise our kids, and our hope and desire are is that all parents participate, no matter the amount. Every dollar counts, but what counts, even more, is our collaboration and cooperation as parents. Below outlines some of the initiatives and beneficiaries of the 2019 – 2020 39 Days of Giving Campaign!

General Fund

  • Classroom Supplies
    • Did you know the average parent spends over $120 on classroom supplies each year in a traditional classroom? Funds from 39 Days of giving provide students with the following.
      • All student supplies at Design39Campus — paper, pencils, markers, construction paper, glue.
      • Makery materials, robotics, science, math, and all instruction materials.
  • Student Enrichment
    • Before and after school activities spanning all grade ranges are all fully, or partially, funded through 39 days of giving.
    • You can visit our Student Enrichment Page Here to see some of the amazing opportunities your children can take advantage of, all made possible by our annual fundraiser
  • Professional Development
    • When we surveyed our parents, the number one response was “hiring and developing” the best teachers possible for every classroom. Research confirms that the most important factor contributing to a student’s success in school is the quality of teaching.
      • Funds will help pay for multiple professional development strategy to include routine professional development days used to engaging our teams of Learning Experience Designers (teachers) around the needs of our students.
      • D39 Staff and LEDs learn to problem-solve together in order to ensure all students achieve success.
  • Community Educations & Connecting Events
    • Design 39 is more than just a school, its a community. Funds raised during 39 days of giving help to pay for community engagement events for students, teachers, and parents alike throughout the year.

Social & Emotional Well-Being

  • At Design39Campus we move from competition to collaboration where relationships are the units we use to measure success. School can be a challenging environment for children with changing bodies and growing minds. We aim to foster a welcoming environment for all children and families at are school, but that takes intentionality, work, and investment. New and expanded initiatives this year include:
    • Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Curriculum and Events for students and parents.
      • Disney Youth Leadership Series
      • No Place for Hate Leadership Conference
      • Anti-Bias Training
    • Counseling Support
    • Clubs (Leadership & Inclusivity)
    • Counseling Center
    • SEL Professional Development for Staff

Elementary (TK-3) Requirements

  • Impact Reading Specialist
    • Teaching all children to read requires that every child receive excellent reading instruction and that children who are struggling with reading receive additional instruction from professionals specifically prepared to teach them.
    • Our Reading Specialist provides expert instruction, assessment, and leadership for our reading program.
  • Project Lead The Way (PLTW)
    • Learning pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science engage students in hands-on activities, projects, and problems; empowering them to solve real-world challenges and inspire them to reimagine how they see themselves.
