Mrs. Ashe just had her Donors Choose Grant completely funded for the photography club here at ACMS! “Capture It” a grant written by Mrs. Ashe was 1 of the 147 CCS grants fulfilled on National #BestSchoolDay Surprise. Three Ipads and protective cases will be added to the photography club due to all projects receiving surprise funding on March 28th from A San Francisco based technology company. Teachers at ACMS often use the DonorsChose website to get additional materials for their classroom. If you have ever thought about helping out ACMS this is a great way to lend your support for classrooms within our school. Way to Go Mrs. Ashe!

Teachers got a special surprise on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, when they learned
they were part of a classroom project request “flash funding” on the nonprofit website
DonorsChoose.org. Ripple, a San Francisco-based technology company, and its executives
announced that they donated $29 million to fund every classroom project request on the
site. As part of that surprise funding, 220 projects from the Cumberland County Schools
teachers were funded, totaling $125,897. Combined with citizen and corporate donations
already given, $139,959 in classroom supplies and resources were supported yesterday.

“Thank you, Donors Choose and #BestSchoolDay funders for making it the #BestSchoolDay
in Cumberland County,” said Jennifer Lloyd, the school system’s Grants Management
Coordinator. “We are touched by the generosity of the funders and the dedication to our
students shown by our teachers!”

This is the first time in the 18-year history of DonorsChoose.org that a donor has funded
every project on the site. Stephen Colbert revealed the news on Tuesday’s Late Show with
Stephen Colbert, and the organization celebrated all of the funded teachers on social media
using the hashtag #BestSchoolDay.
